The 25 Most Powerful Women Engineers In Tech
When a pregnant Marissa Meyer took over as Yahoo's CEO last year, the tech industry seemed to enter a new era: the end of the glass ceiling.
But the truth is, there's still an alarming shortage of women becoming engineers, particularly software engineers.
For instance, less than 12 percent of computer science degrees earned in 2010-11 were awarded to women.
There's a lot of programs to encourage more women to enter the field from the Ladycoders seminars
to the Anita Borg Institute (ABI)
, which today announced the winners
of its 2013 Women of Vision Awards.
For the women who do choose a tech career, the sky's the limit. There's plenty of opportunity to become a power player, at big companies and hot startups alike.
