Missing the mark
Personally, I think the whole premise misses the mark. Why is it that it is assumed that only women in IT have the acumen to bring the "touchy/feely" that is needed to make the business side happy? As a woman in IT, I am sick and tired of people assuming I am any different from my male counterparts. Having a woman on a team does not miraculously cure your morale, team cohesion, and impression-on-the-business-side issues. Having an environment where management is responsive to and supportive of the team and the business does. Imagine that. There is no panacea. It's just work. Like anything else.
