"If you want to advance in the ICT industry, you have to work harder than your male peers." Women in ICT Industry Survey: preliminary findings
MetadataShow full item record
This paper provides early findings from the 'Women in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Industry' survey, which is the final stage of a large research project into low participation rates of girls in ICT. Preliminary results from 289 women in ICT industries, Australia-wide, suggest that ICT career women are extremely satisfied with their career choice overall. However, further findings, and comparisons with a study conducted in the United Kingdom (UK), suggest that subtle discrimination, a 'glass ceiling' effect, in the ICT workplace continues to provide a source of job dissatisfaction for women in this industry.
