Tech industry is leaving behind women of color, report shows

Women of color earn less than 10 percent of bachelor’s degrees in computing, the report says. Low numbers of women of color can also mean missed economic opportunity for a chunk of the population that’s projected to make up the majority of women by 2060. Tech and IT jobs are some of the fastest-growing, highest-paying jobs out there. And that’s not to mention the chance to help shape burgeoning technologies that will impact the future.
