I am reblogging this post from my personal blog because I’d be interested to know if you have had similar experiences or ones that are quite different. Feel free to ignore! Regards, Jane

Robby Robin's Journey

There have been a striking number of articles about women in business and politics in the past six months or so: the lack of women on corporate boards, the successful use of quotas for women on boards in Europe, the low percentage of women in public life in Canada and the U.S., and the low percentage of women in engineering, computer science, and technology.

As a woman retired from a long career in computer science and management, I read these articles with interest, and with more than a little frustration.  Some things have changed enormously since I started my own career, but so much has not changed.  In the case of the number of women entering the information technology field, things have substantially regressed, despite excellent employment opportunities.

Lieff Salonius:

Lieff Salonius is the Development Manager for Science East Science Centre. New Brunswick’s focus on innovation as the path to economic growth has challenged business and academics to consider the pathways to innovative thinking.  While IT and ICT sectors are addressing HR shortages in the short term, thousands of students diverge from science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects very early in life. How could this be when their lives are driven by science and technology and they are floating in a sea of exciting applications and devices? Lieff will discuss what children, as the world’s most creative problem-solvers, can teach us about inspiring them and forging a different future for the province. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone – please let us know you are coming by registering: http://doodle.com/23uum6pneasycc48
