Success and Struggle of Women in Tech
ROSE Blog: Rikki's Open Source Exchange
Check out this great article in PC World today: Women in IT: Success and Struggle
In the article, Network World's Ellen Messmer looked at nine successful women in IT:
- Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro
- Grace Egan, VP of engineering product management at Time Warner Cable in Broomfield, Colorado
- Maria Cirino, managing director of .406 Venture
- Rhonda MacLean, founder of MacLean Risk Partners
- Patricia Titus, CISO at Unisys
- Emma McGratten, senior VP of engineering at Ingres (and frequent speaker at open source events)
- Sherita Ceasar, vice president of cross-platform applications and engineering services at Comcast in Philadelphia
- Dena Haritos Tsamitis, Director of Carnegie-Mellon University's Information Networking Institute
- Vicki Hamilton, senior VP for enterprise performance at Turner Broadcasting System's operations and strategy group
I'm particularly fond of this Sherita Ceasar quote in the article: "The journey for women is not paved so smooth that we can be complacent," Ceasar says. "But I think that times are truly evolving in a positive direction."comments powered by Disqus
