The numbers of women in tech are plummeting: women were 35% of CS majors in 1985, but only 18% today. Women are missing out on high-impact, flexible, well-paid, and exciting careers, and the industry is missing out on their ideas. By 2020 the United States will have 1 million unfilled roles in computer science and engineering — if women majored in CS at the same rate as men we could cut this gap in half.

There is a huge incentive for men to support the growth of women in the workplace and many things men can do:

  1. Educate yourself and others about bias.
  2. Start or join Lean In Computer Science and Engineering Circles.
  3. Be a 50/50 partner at home.
