    #4 As @Flavia Toro Rodriguez, I never had a different treatment at my workplace for the reason of being a woman. Maybe I was lucky, maybe I had a six sense. In my case I could adapt the title of the article and say that "I fell in tech (arms)".

    As a woman in Tech, I'm glad to say that at my workplace and in my department women are treated the same as men. I've never had this problem in my work, but unfortunatelly an IT recruiter who is a friend of mine told me that there are a lot of companies that explicitly avoid hiring women to work there.

    #2 You are right @Lisa Gallagher : it is amazing to see how much bees love being here and how much they speak about beBee. It is probably one of the keys of beBee's success. It is like in a corporation: when the head maintain a positive atmosphere, the staff is more loyal and its productivity is much higher, no matter the personal investment it takes.

    Dear Simon, the best thing about beBee is that you can build hives for your interests, and those hives not only provide a place where people share an interest, but where others can lurk to see that interest. You have followed hives which follow your interest in emotional intelligence, but you can also create a hive for those interested in equine operations. That is such a specialized field, and as beBee develops it can begin to distinguish between subject matter hives and general hives. Eventually, a cow path will emerge but for now the concept of affinity and hives is more of a self-organizing process. It all comes down how beBee scales and how it evolves as it scales - and that isn't something we know right now. After all when Mark Zuckerberg first began Facebook, he designed it as "a hot or not" site used internally at Harvard University. It was when venture capitalist like Peter Thiel saw the massive scale inherent with Facebook, that Zuckerberg gained leverage - for sure Zuckerberg has moxy, but only a few sites grow into what they today call the unicorns . That is something the Founders of beBee already know http://blog.bebee.com/en/newsroom/bebee-in-the-media/bebee-the-next-unicorn-startup-spain/

    Another great one @Michael Hillebrand. It was interesting seeing Matt's vision for beBee U.S. and realizing that the growth is dependent on all the Bees. We need to provide a product that draws others to the site; interesting, relative, content that intrigues, entertains, teaches, or just connects with people in different ways. There is no set formula for the content on beBee, we are creating the formula, and it will call for diverse content that can reach diverse users from all walks of life.

    @MattSweetwood makes a strong case for beBee and he is right. I believe that beBee has a great potential for building one's unique brand. We live in an amazing world where out of necessity we have developed multi-pronged talents. One can be an international trader and at the same time have an interest for technology. beBee provides this capability and is well in position to disrupt LinkedIn.

As I moved to consulting, I have always been the only woman in the room. Its always amazed me that the women in sili valley that get the press are not the women who got their status due to their skills.... anything but. I also write for Huff Post Women in STEM and I totally agree - we need to write history that include the power of the women who broke into the male worlds and who are continuing to make inroads.

    The media play an important role and have the responsibility in creating the right image on the contribution of women in technical fields. This article is not an isolated case in rewriting the history and diminishing the role of women. Thanks for pointing out this article @Michele Williams.

    Really interesting article @Michele Williams. Both my husband and myself do freelance web design, on telling a FEMALE friend this, she immediately addressed her website queries to him. There is an incorrect assumption that women can't be techies......thanks for getting the message out there that we can do it pretty well, actually!

    Biotech has no pay gap between male and female CEOs. This equity is also reflected throughout that industry and in the graduation rates from universities. Clean tech, medical devices and other tech also have no pay gap at the CEO level. However, there are not yet equal proportions of male and female CEOs in these industries. (via @FortuneMagazine)

    Now how did I miss this one Randy! Just realized it was written in June! Great read, I love your perspective on women in the workforce, though I wouldn't know what it was like to not work. I once had a...debate with my grandfather about women gumming up the workforce and my response to him: "
    Well just consider this Papaw; the women left the kitchen because the men had to start a world war; so if you don't like it, you have no one to blame by yourselves. Did you really think women would spend years making their own money, running their own lives, and then happily return to a life of servitude all because the men finally decided they had killed enough people?"

I'm afraid we still have another generation of overbearing jerks in charge, before the "enlightened" ones come into power. Old habits die hard my friend. Understanding that is probably what drove you to your field of study. Does tend to make a person appreciate the wisdom they acquire in life, no matter the source.

    @Randy Keho, I really enjoyed reading your post. You were spot on defining changes that occurred with women entering the workforce and generational differences. I have never played the woman card and I honestly have little respect for those who do. My mom was a stay at home mom until my father died. We had a sense of security knowing we had our mom at home but that all changed when she had to go to work. So, I have mixed feelings about mothers working if there isnt a monetary reason to. I do not disrespect mothers who work, I guess I just have old fashioned views. The Kardashian's are proof that sex sells. Im proud of women who don't play that card and are hired based solely on their own credentials. I think some men are to blame as well when they allow themselves to be lured by a sexy female over the actual qualified applicants. Even news shows today seem to use pretty women dressed like models to garner a larger audience.

    Somehow I'm not sure we'll ever be fully beyond it @Randy Keho There are so many structural differences between male and female brains, and instinctual programming in the male brain that triggers, I often wonder if we can ever move beyond it. We are designed and wired to be complementary when it comes to continuing the species. And yes, that means sexual differences in our unconscious triggers and responses. My hope is that the next generation will rise above. But it's pretty obvious our current generation is stuck. All you have to do is look at a certain presidential candidate in the US as evidence.

    According UNESCO women comprise less than 28% of the workforce in STEM fields.
    I found this statement why women don’t work in engineering and technology: „The real reason is that most women clearly aren’t as interested in technology-related work as men are “.
    Do you agree?

    #9 @Lada Prkic, unfortunately, it is both. At the elite universities, it is often the case that, in engineering, far fewer than 50% of the students are women and an even lower percentage are tenured faculty members (with the possible exception of biomedical engineering). These schools often provide the pipeline for leadership positions.

    #8 I've read in some articles that in tech careers in US it’s not a pipeline problem that emerges, but a retention problem, because women leave their tech jobs. Is a hostile work environment the main cause for that?

    #6 @Lada Prkic . In the US, there is a gender gap at the top of most firms but according to NPR, the only STEM fields in which men genuinely outnumber women both in firms and at the university level are computer science and engineering.

    Michele Williams
    28/06/2016 #5 Michele Williams
    #4 In the US, there are both pipeline issues at the university level and workplace issues. We have many organizations like "Girls who code" trying to provide girls with the confidence and exposure to pursue careers in STEM. A "lack of interest" is a loaded phrase since both boys and girls often find gendered advice when they try to uncover their interests.

    #1 Randy, thanks for the comment. When I touched a replay button, I accidentally cancelled your relevant and couldn't return it. Sorry! This tool requires an improvement.
    I have always been interested in technology, partly because of my father's genes. He was a genuine technology freak. What to study has never been a dilemma to me. I knew that I would choose something related to engineering and technology. Even many of my girlfriends were interested in STEM fields. In recent years in Croatia in the field of biotechnology, pharmacy and even in mathematics and physics there are more female than male students. At many engineering faculties is almost equal number of girls and boys.
    So, I wouldn’t say that there is no interest. Obviously, problems arise after studying, in workplaces.

    As a woman who works in STEM and has worked in STEM I can tell you that a part of it has to do with the way women are treated. On more than one occasion my thoughts were dismissed simply because I was not "one of the boys" and didn't think the way that they did.
