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."
