Why Is There a Gender Gap in Tech?

Reshma Saujani, Girls Who Code
In conversation with: Ravi Belani, Stanford University

Girls Who Code founder Reshma Saujani explains that computer programming was initially dominated by women, but that the field became increasingly male through the 1990s and 2000s. Changes to STEM education have helped fix the pipeline problem — now, top engineering schools often enroll as many women as men — but work remains to make the tech industry an attractive place for women to build long-term careers.
