Attracting more women to the computing and IT fields is a challenge, according to a feature in the March issue of the IEEE Computer Society‘s Computer magazine.

This is going to be a HR nightmare in the near future; according to the National Committee of Women in Information Technology, by 2018, U.S. universities will produce only 52 percent of the computer science bachelor’s degrees needed to fill the 1.4 million jobs that will be available, and more diversity is needed to grow and graduate qualified applicants.
