How Telle Whitney and AnitaB.org Promote Women in Technology

Time interview AnitaB.org’s CEO and President Telle Whitney to discuss the problems women in technology face and the ways AnitaB.org is fighting these issues. There is a major pipeline problem in the tech field as only about 18% of computer science grads are women. As Telle points out, however, “Women leave at twice the rate as men, so it’s not just about the hiring processes… It’s also important to look at the retention and advancement of women within your organization.”

AnitaB.org is dedicated to fighting gender inequality in the tech field, providing valuable resources to women in tech and hosting events such as our Grace Hopper Celebration. “[F]or many women who attend, it’s a life-changing experience,” Telle says. “The chance to hear from other women who they admire, the chance to connect, is just an amazing experience.”
