Re: computers v business
I agree, I would have thought a business degree would have been more popular. 

I agree with Sue that women are harder on themselves and that can affect confidence. In a recent Upskill U course on Agile, speaker Alan Bateman said that failure is a key part of the Agile process, but try to fail quickly. He also said it's important to be able to accept constructive criticism. I think that applies for women in the workplace as well - don't be afraid to make a mistake, but try to pick yourself up quickly, learn from it, and let it go.

computers v business
Thank you for sharing your story, Sue! Interesting that the computer science degree was the one that was flooded, not business. I'd think it'd be the other way around or, at least, it is now. It is easier to go into business with a computer science background than go into a computer science role with a business backround, I imagine. Those that can cross the divide should do well in today's tech workplace.
