"Preparing Women and Minorities for the IT Workforce: The Role of Nontraditional Educational Pathways"

A new AAAS study on women and IT:

"This study examines the role of nontraditional educational pathways in preparing women and underrepresented minorities for the information technology (IT) workforce. It was sparked by the finding that the nation's number one producer of bachelor's degrees in information technology and computer science (IT/CS) was not a major research university, but instead was Strayer University, a for-profit institution with many campuses in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area. Not only was Strayer the top producer overall, but it also produced the largest number of women and African-American graduates with baccalaureates in IT/CS."
