Women working in the IT sector are generally
positive about their careers, according to new research.
A recent study conducted by womenintechnology.co.uk indicated that
55 per cent of respondents felt "continual change" was the best

earn as much as their male counterparts in similar roles.
Maggie Berry, director of womenintechnology.co.uk, said the study

the skills and knowledge they need to help overcome some of these
problems and hopefully chip away at that glass ceiling," she
Elsewhere, the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services
recently claimed that strong IT skills are a significant advantage
in the jobs market.
