It's no secret that the tech industry has a diversity problem. Women make up a disproportionately small percentage of tech company workforces, and this is exacerbated in technical and managerial roles. I won't get into the multitude of reasons our world has gotten to be this way (see here, here, and here if you're curious). Thankfully, this issue has been gaining more attention in recent years, and a number of great organizations have sprung up to help educate and support companies, parents, and young people to change the status quo.
