#WomeninSTEM: A celebration

Today is International Day of Women and Girls in Science, and women in tech is a subject we’ve covered a lot here at IDG Connect. It started with a report back in 2013 [pdf] on why there was a shortage of women in the IT industry, but it’s a subject we’ve returned to regularly.

In celebration of International Day of Women and Girls in Science, here’s a roundup of our related stories from the last year:
