Cutting-Edge Practitioners and Their Views on Critical Skills, Background, and Education
Publisher: O'Reilly
Released: January 2015

The gender gap in tech is shrinking. Women are still an underrepresented minority in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), but women in data and technology are no longer outliers or anomalies. For this book, author and data warrior Cornelia Lévy-Bencheton interviewed 15 women in data to learn how they achieved their current level of success, what motivated them to get there, and their views about opportunities for women.

Introducing women to STEM is now a nationwide crusade, but advancing the idea that gender diversity fuels creativity, innovation, and economic growth is still a challenge. The stories in this book are inspiring, revealing insights that will widen the path for even more women in tech.

These interviews explore:

  • The expanding role of the contemporary data scientist
  • New attitudes towards women in data among Millennials
  • Benefits of the data and STEM fields as a career choice for women
  • Much needed and increasingly sought-after remedies for closing the gender gap

Cornelia Lévy-Bencheton is an NYC-based communications strategy consultant and writer whose data-driven marketing and decision support work helps companies optimize their performance. She has held senior marketing and strategy positions in well-known financial services firms, and is currently on the Board of The Data Warehouse Institute, Tri-State Chapter, (TDWI) and the Board of the Financial Women’s Association (FWA).
