Free Housing, Other Efforts Try to Attract Women to Tech

AnitaB.org’s Senior Vice President of Marketing, Alliances and Programs Elizabeth Ames recently discussed efforts to increase representation of women in tech.

“There is definitely a momentum, but I would caution that it’s not going to be solved immediately,” she stated. “There are some real challenges and it will take time.”

One example of momentum is TUNE’s sponsorship of a 3,100-square-foot home near the University of Washington for female students interested in computer science and technology. TUNE, a marketing software startup, hopes that this rent-free house will encourage women to join the tech field and provide a supportive community at home.
