Why Are There So Few Women In Tech?

Tech companies have employed a host of tactics to help lift the scant number of women and minorities who work within their ranks, like anti-bias training, affinity groups, and software that scans job postings for gendered language. Yet the numbers remain dire. Of men with science, technology engineering, or math (STEM) degrees, 40% work in technical careers; only 26% of women with STEM degrees do. That means that qualified women are turning away from the field before they even get started.
