Despite a lot of discussion and attention, the gap between male and female technology talent continues. Perhaps it's time for another round of debate. Are companies not hiring enough female employees, or there are not enough female tech talent to hire? Or is it a combination of both?
Recent diversity reports issued by companies such as Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Intel, HP, and (most recently) Facebook reveal that, despite worldwide criticism, the technology industry remains male-dominated.
Technology companies should take a closer look at their figures and consider hiring more female workers to make their organizations more dynamic and balanced. Also, women who have chosen engineering and other tech-related careers might want to explore the opportunities offered by technology companies.
