Re: Comment on Adaptive-ness
Love that!! This is why it is matters to color the story with real data.

Thank you.

Re: Comment on Adaptive-ness
This is an old study, but a quick Internet search proves this statement scientifically true, Solution63465: "Since the X chromosome has something like 3.4 times more genes involved in brain power than any other chromosome, that extra genetic activity may make females more complex, more variable and possibly more adaptable than males." - http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2005-04-17/news/0504170015_1_x-chromosome-active-genes-scientists

Comment on Adaptive-ness
Although the comment is favorable toward women, is that really a correct statement to make in a public forum? Isn't that just the type of thing we ((all)) try to avoid? (Generalizations that exclude others?) Although we continue to champion for equality, is there some science behind Mr. Donovan's statement that was omitted from this article that says "Women are more adaptable", If so, please share.

Re: Gender stereotypes
My younger daughter was similar. Could tell at a young age she liked to figure things out -- still loves puzzles as a young adult. But there was no push in high school for STEM. Though she was a theater major in college, she set the curve in a CSI (elective) class. Would have been much better long-term to go into STEM area. And she still enjoys figuring things out.

Re: Gender stereotypes
You're right: My daughter's in high school and, although she has a female physics teacher, most STEM teachers are male and the subject-matter is taught in a very dry manner, in a vacuum almost. She's a smart kid, but nobody in her educational career to date has explained or shown how or why she should be interested in any computing or STEM career -- and believe me, I've tried! It's tough to combat 'boring classes' and teachers who just read the book... Let's make STEM more fun, more real and more relevant -- for all kids, but especially girls and kids from low-income backgrounds who can unlock free college and careers via STEM.

Re: Gender stereotypes
I like that point, too -- especially after study after study confirms the financial benefits of mixing genders (not all men or all women) in an organization. The same holds true for diverse cultures, ethnicities, etc.; we all bring our own histories and viewpoints and, combined, come up with better solutions to problems that face us all, regardless of who or what we are.

Over my dead body. Here at Eurobites Towers it's strictly Yorkshire Tea (Hard Water Variety), formulated by Taylor's of Harrogate. It's the one they ask for by name.

Re: Gender stereotypes
The gender imbalance in the industry will likely continue for some time to come. For that to change, companies need to get down in the weeds (colleges and high schools) and actively recruit as well as promote industry opportunities.

At least you're bucking stereotypes by drinking vanilla chamomile tea, Paul!

Next thing you'll be telling us that men are no good at multi-tasking, Sarah. Dammit! I just knocked my tea over while typing that...
