Getting women into top IT posts

The British Computer Society has launched a new group, women@CL, aimed at getting more women into top information technology research posts.
"We aim to shatter the frosted glass ceiling that prevents many women reaching the top of the IT research profession," says campaign director Ursula Martin, computer science professor at London University’s Queen Mary College.

"We call it the frosted glass ceiling because it is not unbreakable but we have historically had difficulty seeing through it.

"Women@CL has been formed to encourage, support, inform and celebrate women who are or plan to work in computing research or academic leadership in industry and academia."
