Why women leave tech: It’s the culture, not because ‘math is hard’

Everything that I have found in my research, and everything that I see in my personal experience agrees with the finding below.  Women like CS (maybe even more than men, on average).  Women leave because of the culture. Do read the whole article — there’s a bunch of data and interesting analyses.

One-hundred-ninety-two women cited discomfort working in environments that felt overtly or implicitly discriminatory as a primary factor in their decision to leave tech. That’s just over a quarter of the women surveyed. Several of them mention discrimination related to their age, race, or sexuality in addition to gender and motherhood.
