We’d like to take a moment to recognize some of the trailblazing women who have taken on the tech world and are changing the landscape as they go. In this infographic, we hear from some of the IT industry’s most influential players on how women can find their place in a traditionally male-dominated sphere, and how companies can bring more high-performing women on board.
The playing field is not even yet, but as Padmasree Warrior can tell you, leading the helm as Cisco’s Chief Technology and Strategy Officer (with a cool million followers on Twitter to boot) is not out of reach. Not only do companies benefit from having women in leadership roles, but greater diversity overall can make a team more intelligent, more profitable and more relevant.
To do our own part in bringing more women into tech, and more of tech’s women into the limelight, New Relic is offering ten fully paid-for scholarships to FutureStack13, our first technology conference. The August 23rd deadline is rapidly approaching, so apply here to get a chance to meet with others who are passionate about web development and learn more about the future of technology.
