There’s been a lot of talk online over the last 6 or so months about ‘women in tech’ – to call it talk is an understatement. There have been all out shit storms, brawls, debates, discussions, celebrations, and utter failures.
As a ‘woman who works in technology’ myself it’s been an interesting discussion to watch unfold.

Susan notes: this guest blog post is by executive coach Lynn Harris, author of Unwritten Rules: What Women Need To Know About Leading In Today's Organisations; it was recently published on The Glass Hammer, online community designed for women executives in financial services, law and business. I love Harris's new project finding, interviewing and writing about "men who 'get it.'" Are you one? Or do you know a man who is? Contact Harris or me with the details.
Since publishing Unwritten Rules: What Women Need To Know About Leading In Today's Organisations, I’ve worked with others to try to get more women in positions of senior leadership.
Basically all change efforts boil down to the same thing - can we get people to behave differently?
In this case:
- Can we get shareholders to appoint more women to their boards?
- Can we get CEOs to create gender-balanced teams to lead their organizations?
- Can we get professional services firms to operate differently so that more women stay and make partner?
- Can we get political parties to field equal numbers of men and women candidates, and then get journalists and voters to give women a fair chance?

La Senza lingerie is fabulous.
I'm not being paid to say that - as a modestly busted lady, I like a strapless bra that doesn't end up around my waist. And as a lady with an actual bottom, I like knickers that don't migrate up that particular area.
