Climbing the Technical Ladder: Obstacles and Soluntions for Mid-level Women in Technology
The mid level is perhaps the most critical juncture for women on the technical career ladder because it is where a complex set of gender barriers converge. In order to learn why the mid level is a “glass ceiling” for women on the technical ladder, the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology and the Michelle R. Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University have
