Corporate Social Responsibility

It can be lonely for a woman in the technology field.

At the college level, men earn 82 percent of engineering and computer science degrees. And while women make up 47 percent of the overall workforce, they constitute only 27 percent of the science and engineering workforce. Isolation and lack of mentors often prevent women from pursuing and advancing in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.

View our feature on the Huffington Post ImpactX about women who are excelling in the technology field and serving as mentors for other young women.

Dr. Akila Sarirete leads a networking technology program for woman at Effat University in Saudi Arabia as a lecturer and IT supervisor in 2002. Her goal is to expand employment options for women and help advance their careers.
