Crushing the IT Gender Bias
May 14th, 2019
Gender bias in the world of STEM is not merely a fleeting zeitgeist topic, but a structural truth that can be meaningfully examined, challenged, and ultimately eliminated. With Crushing the IT Gender Bias from Apress, author Kellyn Pot’Vin-Gorman has written a book that accessibly depicts the reality of what women in tech experience, and follows that up by supplying you with the practical tools necessary to identify and remove bias in your own organization. After witnessing multiple female peers depart the tech world, Pot’Vin-Gorman has written Crushing the IT Gender Bias to make her voice heard and to start this necessary conversation productively so that women can thrive.
Any and all members of the tech community will receive invaluable benefits from the book, as it provides women with strategies and advice about common gender-based workplace pushbacks and enthusiastically welcomes men with a desire to grow in their understanding. In 2019, owners and employees alike have the responsibility to proceed in their professional organizations with awareness and empathy. Pot’Vin-Gorman has used her two decades of industry experience to draw you a map.
Crushing the IT Gender Bias sources hard data about inequality in the tech industry, which backs up its real-world case studies. Conscious and unconscious bias, societal pressures, and discomfort with women’s ambition are issues that women are confronted with in any male-dominated setting. By arming yourself with knowledge and facing bias head-on, you can be the meaningful change that you want to see in the tech industry.
