Fewer women in top U.S. tech jobs since 2010: survey

Reuters, 5/14/2012...The number of women in senior technology positions at U.S. companies is down for the second year in a row, according to a survey published on Monday.


Nine percent of U.S. chief information officers (CIOs) are female, down from 11 percent last year and 12 percent in 2010, according to the survey by the U.S. arm of British technology outsourcing and recruitment company Harvey Nash Group (HARV.L).

"Less and less women are attracted into that space so you wind up creating a self-fulfilling prophecy," said Anna Frazzetto, senior vice president of international technology solutions, at Harvey Nash USA. "It's not a very welcoming arena to be in."
