How can and should women be supported in IT?
It's very simple: women at the top lead to more women further down the ladder. It's the simplest way to solve the diversity problem. For women, it is important that they can benefit from role models. Women should also take advantage of the opportunity to promote themselves and one another by building a strong network, making themselves visible and talking about their IT background and skills. Helpful too are gender-neutral recruitment processes in companies and a feel for gender diversity in teams. And quite fundamentally, women should get excited about the STEM subjects, i.e. science, technology, engineering and mathematics, when making their career choices.
