Women in technology: things to think about

Upcoming Social Tech Brewing planning meeting. Jane has some pretty interesting questions:

# What are the challenges facing women in IT today? What can we do to change these challenges?
# What is the definition of women in IT? Roles for women in technology does not necessarily have to be restricted to “pure techie”, perhaps it’s our perception about women in IT that needs to change.
# The non-profit sector has always been a female dominant sector. Is this true for technology roles as well? If not, why?
# Who are some of the leaders/organizations out there that are making a difference for women in technology? What innovative projects are they working on?
# Best practices/tips for women who woud like to get a career in technology.
# Do female foreign trained professionals in technology have more barriers to overcome? Are there any existing resources for these women?
