COF-CS Workshop October 16

Lack of Women in Tech Industry

There seems  to be a lack of Women in Tech in the United States and European Countries with respect to overall population ratios.  Roughly 17 percent of workers in Tech in the United Kingdom, France, Spain and the United States are women.  In India, China and Korea the per centage of women in tech reflects the per centage of women in the overall population.  And because of the lack of representation in Tech Jobs there is a consistency in low representation in other aspects, women owners and upper management positions in tech companies, innovations in tech have fewer than 1.5% of women on a patent.
