Sarah, this is a very special post! This issue is as much about ‘gender' as it is about timing and market evolution. Women are needed in tech just as they are in all sectors. Tech (like all professions) has evolved past the tactical and moved into the ‘Social' construct. A woman’s perspective on the next wave of business evolution is what will make the difference. Yes, tech is important but so are the other opportunities emerging. We need to encourage our girls to dream and pursue their passions, whatever they may be. More importantly, when we see unique basic skills, we need to encourage them, not force them down ‘gender friendly' paths.
