Happy February !
This month's newsletter is focused on Women in Technology and the great support groups that represent and empower female technologists and entrepreneurs, nationally and locally.There are over 30 organizations that assist women with networking, management training, leadership and personal branding. Constant professional and personal development is key to manage a successful organization. Technology is an ever-changing industry that will remain highly competitive but also full of opportunity for women leaders to step up and play a greater role. There are plenty of great resources for women to find the confidence, support and essential tools to become successful female technologists.
Witi is a great local networking forum that focusses on connecting women in the Technology Industry and assist them with finding professional and personal development opportunities. Another well recognized networking forum is Watermark, a membership organization that represents emerging executives, senior executives and entrepreneurs. For more information in the many resources available to  women in technology please visit Tech.Co

Over the years Nicole McMackin has become an inspiring advocate 
for women in technology, she has continued to not only support and coach
young executives and entrepreneurs, she also participates in several professional executive groups that promote  both business and personal development.

This month Nicole attended a courage seminar, which is a vital leadership skill executives must possess. Part of this outing was to challenge oneself and show courage by parachuting out of a plane, thousands of feet above ground. We are very proud of Nicole and her continued
efforts to inspire and encourage women in technology.

Mentors Help Create A Sustainable Pipeline For Women In STEM

Women make up about half of the workforce in America, but they only represent 24% of the workforce in STEM fields. Why should we care? First and foremost, this statistic calls attention to an untapped potential; talent that we need in science, technology, engineering and mathematics in order to remain competitive from a global perspective. But for women, this is important on another level because careers in STEM industries offer better compensation and more career advancement opportunities. In fact, women who hold STEM positions earn 92 cents to the dollar versus 77 cents for women who are not in these fields.

Yet, creating a pathway for women to be successful in these industries is a complex problem; one that must be addressed on several different levels in order to be effective.Young girls are not encouraged to study these subjects in school and even if they receive STEM degrees, many are not pursuing careers in these fields or staying in STEM professions.

Women in Business can be their worst Enemies.

Currently, the Fortune 500 is led by only 25 female CEOs. In a recent study conducted by Pew Research Center, 34% of respondents surveyed believe that male executives are better than women executives at assuming risk.
Moreover, when asked about specific industries women could support, a significant portion felt that men would do a better job leading technology, oil and gas, and finance companies, whereas women would be strongest at running retail and food companies.
Although that survey bleeds traditional stereotyping of women, you still need to ask yourself the question: "Why aren't more women promoted into the CEO position, but rather held back?"

Historically, it seems that women do not have the consistent, high-ranking executive sponsorship who campaign for their advancement.
