Hey Journalists: Start Writing More Articles about the Women Working in Tech Not at the C or VP Level if You Want to Get More Women in Tech

Posted by Ali Powell on Oct 28, 2014 5:27:51 PM

There are so many blog posts and articles that I see daily on how to get more women working in tech. They are all over. Every major publication, news site, or tech blog now has a section about women. That is great. I think we should keep doing that. But, if we want to expose more women to what it is like to work in many different roles in tech then we need to expose women of all ages and all expertise to real jobs that women have in tech at all levels. A lot of these articles talk about the lack of women in tech and give advice on how to get more women there. But, the only articles I read about women working in tech are with C level or VP level people being featured on those posts.

How My Mother's Selflessness and Determination Taught Me that Women Can Be Whatever They Want to Be and Work Their Way Up

Posted by Ali Powell on May 12, 2014 10:05:14 AM

My mother deserves more than this blog post. I rarely talk about how my mom has influenced me as a person but with Mothers Day yesterday I think she deserves a spot light. My Mom has taught me that any girl, any lady, any woman can be what she wants to be in life. To be successful (whatever that means to you) you need to get out there and do stuff. Get stuff done. Luck happens because you work hard and then your hard work pays off. Be good to people and to yourself and good things will come to you. Hard work is something we are all capable of. The world holds whatever you want to make of it. So get up and start working towards something. If you want to get somewhere in life you need to work towards it. Have your eye on some goal and work towards everyday.

A Call for Women in Tech to Help Change the Stigma of What it is like to work as women in tech- From the Inside of our Companies Out.

Posted by Ali Powell on Apr 8, 2014 9:00:00 AM

Women hold only one quarter of all IT jobs. I read this yesterday in a post about the importance of getting more women in tech. This article was posted in the NY Times and was titled "Technology's Man Problem." The title sparked my interest right away. Then when I checked out the other people on Twitter posting about it, I figured I should spend some time actually reading it to see if I could learn something. I  have a stream setup to get notifications anytime someone on Twitter tweets about anything to do with women in tech and my stream after this post came out looked like this.
