Barriers to Women in Tech Spaces and How to Break Them

What are the barriers to women in technology, and how do we bridge that gap? Kelly Ireland, CBT’s Founder, CEO, and CTO, answers this question in a recent DisruptED episode with Ron J. Stefanski.

“Many women need the right motivation to excel within the technological space”, noted Kelly. “I have enjoyed a successful career because I have always adopted the problem-solving approach. Also, I think that women are natural problem solvers, so it is no doubt that they will do well in tech careers. One of the ways I coped as a woman in tech back in the day was by walking around with blinders- as long as I got the necessary knowledge and skill, I believed I could do it.”
