Saw this blog post by Joshua Kim this morning at IHE and think he poses some interesting questions that may resonate with many on this list. 

http://www.insidehighered.com//blogs/technology-and-learning/women-and-academic-technology 

 My first question would be, do you agree with this observation that women seem to be better represented in Edtech leadership positions than in tech leadership positions as a whole?  Is he on target with his three premised reasons?

I know for me this is a reminder to look around next week while at Educause and pay attention to how many women are in senior leadership roles at their institutions and are taking active roles at the conference.

Regards,

Keith

While the following is not computer science or IT, I thought I would post here in case anyone knows of any resources to which I may point this student. I think she was referred to me because of my involvement with NCWIT, but I don’t have connections in the broader STEM fields.  Anyone know of any ideas? I think she has tried our campus resources and is reaching out to everyone she can.  This young woman is a sophomore.

 

“Just this summer I participated in Cornell's tri institutional MD PhD program doing Leukemia research at Sloan Kettering. I submitted the research I did to a national conference called ABRCMS.  I have been chosen to do a poster presentation, but was denied a travel grant. I really want to participate in this conference but cannot because I do not have the funds to go.”

Hi all,

 

I’m wondering if any of you have started a Women in IT/technology group of any kind at your institution.  A colleague of mine within IT recently floated the idea that we create one at our school – basically, just carve out some regular time for women within our IT department to meet, discuss relevant issues/topics, build skills, mentor and coach one another, and generally just help each other succeed. 

 

Any tips or tricks?  Keys to success?

 

Robyn

I wish you all the best as you pursue your goals.  Several years ago I would have enjoyed participating with such a group but I am currently looking at retirement in less than two years at the ripe old age of 60.  Far too young to be not ‘working.’  I still believe that I have much to give but find the ‘current’ administration not very receptive nor respectful of my experiences, skills, and ideas.

 

It would be interesting to take a ‘view over your shoulder’ as you start collaborating with other young professionals.  So if you don’t mind added me to your list, I would be much appreciative.

I registered for the Grace Hopper conference which is taking place next week in Baltimore, Maryland. Unfortunately I am unable to attend due to work commitments (looking forward to going one of these days, darnit!). Since I canceled late, I cannot get a refund on the fees. I can, however, transfer my registration. The conference was completely full, so I wanted to offer up my seat. Is anyone interested in going? If so let me know ASAP. I would ask, however, that you or your institution give us the funds for the registration fee - $615.

Hello,

 

I don’t know if this is the appropriate group to post my message but I’ll go ahead and ask.

 

I am a young woman in IT (in Wireless Networking) and in a couple of weeks I should give a presentation to a group of female students (11-13 years old) in order to convince them to join an IT career path.

The presentation is one hour long.

How can I motivate them and make this presentation interesting?

Considering their age, I should be less technical as possible, in order not to lose their attention.

I thought about doing  some experiments with a wireless network setup. I don’t know if this would be a right approach.

 

What is your advice? Have you had similar...

Dear ITWomen CGers-- Ah! February! The month of snow and polar vortices and Poehler Vortices (pic.twitter.com/bz00ATZdow) and U.S. Presidents and, of course, love. Why not show a little love this month by starting a women and IT group on your campus? Start small (a conversation with a few allies over a hot beverage of choice, perhaps?) and then expand your efforts a step at a time (state your goals, offer resources and events to make your group interesting, make your business case to secure a champion, etc.). Easy-peasy and fulfilling! On a related note, we’d like to hear from you about your local women & IT groups. Can you write to me (deblkf@cu.edu) and Beth Schaefer (beths@uwm.edu) if: * You have an established group on your campus (and tell us a bit about it!); * You had a group, but it fizzled (and tell us why it might have not been sustainable); * You want to get a group started and would like someone to bounce ideas off of.

Happy Belated New Year, Women-in-IT-CGers, and welcome to the season of resolutions! We might not be able to inspire you to exercise or to stick to a budget, but we can help you reach your goals of professional learning and advancement. First, how much do you know about unconscious bias? If you're like most of us, you're probably unconscious of it. (Haha! One of my New Year's resolutions is to tell bad jokes.) We all have "knowledge schemas" that shape our beliefs about the world, schemas that are based in generalizations or stereotypes. While such knowledge schemas can be helpful (Bear! Danger!), they can also lead us to judge the same action or outcome differently for women and men.
