Abstract

The excitement of information technology is not only within the discipline itself. Advances in computers have led to leaps in almost every academic discipline and changed the very nature of our everyday lives. The knowledge revolution has resulted in rapid changes to the way we work and live. This includes the offering of an increasing range of career opportunities that did not exist before. Computing is one of the fastest growing industries, but since most jobs remain dominated by males, women remain a major latent source of talent for the technology field.
