"We need more women in STEM". "Why aren't there more women in the technology industry?"
If everyone of you are like me, then you probably go into interviews or career fairs or even company open days with eyes wide open hoping to see a fellow woman in your STEM related discipline. Every time you hear about a new company or you go to a company's website, you're always on the look out for women in a technical role.
This is not to say that we are not there because we are, it's just that we are a rare occurrence, much like unicorns. However, unicorns are legendary creatures that do not exist in this reality, but we do. We exist. We are out here but the reality is that we are scattered within the vast majority of companies out there.
“We all have what it takes to succeed in this male dominated industry.”
