How Do We Get More Women in Tech?

    Nice to see that you're addressing the guy factor.  As a female, I've felt like a 2nd class citizen at the iSchool - mostly from guy students, not faculty, but all I see the iSchool doing is bringing in more girls for tours and workshops.  The iSchool needs to consider joining with the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI.org) and having students go through their "welcoming diversity" workshops.  They need to realize that there is a problem at the school, and it's not just that girls aren't interested in tech!

      That's a shame. What have been the attitudes of some of the male students? Do you think the tours and workshops are enough for girls?
