It was four years ago that Straight Talk published a special
section of articles by prominent female CIOs, called "Women,
Leadership & IT: Advice to Advance Your Career." Two years
ago, we published an entire special issue on "The Advance
of Women in IT," which offered more insights on getting
ahead from senior women executives, based on their career
experiences.
With this, our second special issue on women in technology,
we again bring together personal stories, career advice,
business insights and professional lessons about being a
woman technology leader.
Why has Straight Talk repeatedly returned to this subject?
For one thing, it's a topic for our times. Women - who (as
our pullout poster "An Early History of Women in IT" shows)
played a key role in computing from its earlier days - should
have the same opportunity to assume technology leadership
roles as men. Furthermore, numerous studies have shown
that the diversity resulting from greater numbers of women in
technology leadership roles improves business performance.
But we also return to the topic because it fits with Straight
Talk's mission of providing the experience-based insights of
technology executives - insights that can help their peers find
solutions to technology challenges, drive business results and
advance their careers. In this context, insightful and inspiring
stories shared by successful women technology executives are
one of the best ways to encourage young women to enter the
profession and then to equip them for success as they move
up the ranks.
Another source of inspiration: the examples of younger women
who may lack experience but who have used technology to
make a positive contribution to society. We recognize such
women in our "The Tech 302" list: 30 women under 30 whose
professional work has had a positive ripple effect - a multiplier
effect - through society and whose contribution could thus be
seen as greater than the sum of its parts.
And what about men? Is there anything in this issue for them?
Well, listening to what these women have to say can help
answer a question many male technology executives ask
themselves: What can I do to help? The last article of this issue
offers one executive's answer to that question. But the entire
issue offers answers - answers that can help organizations
become more equitable in the gender mix of their leadership
teams and consequently enjoy greater business success.
