If I had this a month ago!

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">As I was going through some papers that I got from the ProfIT conference I came across a leaflet promoting the <a href="http://www.intellectuk.org/markets/groups/women/default.asp">Intellect Women in IT</a> Forum.<br />
<br />If only I had looked at it before I gave the presentation at the 'Women into ICT' day! It summarises very nicely some of the key issues affecting the recruitment and retention of women in working IT today and also mentions the deliverables from their research programme, in particular:<br />
<a href="http://www.intellectuk.org/download.asp?file=254">
<br />Women in the IT industry: Phase 2 Research How to Retain Women in the IT Industry</a> (July 2005)<br />
<a href="http://www.intellectuk.org/download.asp?file=253">Women in the IT industry: Phase 1 Research Towards a Business Case for Diversity</a> (January 2005)<br />
<br />That wasn't what got me all excited though. The Intellect link led me to the hitherto unplummed depths of the E-skills UK website (and I used to think I'd had a really good browse of it too!). In a tiny corner of the careers section there is a <a href="http://www.e-skills.com/Careers-Site/Careers/Case-Studies/Women/293">link to a video</a> entitled 'You can do IT too!' which, lo and behold, seeks to destroy those stereotypical perceptions of IT workers in an effort to encourage young women into the field!</div><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://itilimp.blogspot.com/2006/06/if-i-had-this-month-ago.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>
