  • Women In STEM: A Gender Gap to Innovation Part 1

    Increasing access to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education builds a pipeline to the jobs of tomorrow and continues America’s legacy of innovation. However, even with the spotlight on STEM, women and minorities are severely underrepresented in these fields. Today, women and minorities make up 70% of college students yet less than 45% of STEM degrees. The discrepancy presents an opportunity to mobilize a largely untapped talent pool.

  • How Did Tech Become So Male-Dominated?

    Since computing began in the 1940s, women have led major developments in programming and software development. In 1984, 37 percent of computer-science majors were women. What happened? The tech industry's image shifted rapidly in the 1980s and ’90s, and society began to associate programming with men. Today, only one in four computing jobs is held by a woman. This short, animated history of women in tech explains how women—not just men—developed computer science. Programming isn't a male or female job, and remembering that is necessary to fix the tech industry’s gender gap.

[Recorded: May 8, 2013] For the past five years, I've sat at a desk next to Sheryl and I've learned something from her almost every day. She has a remarkable intelligence that can cut through complex processes and find solutions to the hardest problems. Lean In combines Sheryl's ability to synthesize information with her understanding of how to get the best out of people. The book is smart and honest and funny. Her words will help all readers—especially men—to become better and more effective leaders. - Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO, Facebook Thirty years after women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States, men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry. This means that women's voices are still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg examines why women's progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential. Sandberg is the chief operating officer of Facebook and is ranked on Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and as one of Time's 100 Most Influential People in the World. In 2010, she gave an electrifying TEDTalk in which she described how women unintentionally hold themselves back in their careers. Her talk, which became a phenomenon and has been viewed more than two million times, encouraged women to "sit at the table," seek challenges, take risks, and pursue their goals with gusto. Join Google's Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt as he moderates what is certain to be a fascinating conversation with Sandberg about women, leadership and so much more. This event is part of the Museum's acclaimed Revolutionaries speaker series, featuring renowned innovators, business and technology leaders, and authors in enthralling conversations often with leading journalists. Our audiences learn about the process of innovation, its risks and rewards, and failure that led to ultimate success. Lot Number: X6828.2013 Catalog Number: 102746826

Since computing began in the 1940s, women have led major developments in programming and software development. In 1984, 37 percent of computer-science majors were women. What happened? The tech industry's image shifted rapidly in the 1980s and ’90s, and society began to associate programming with men. Today, only one in four computing jobs is held by a woman. This short, animated history of women in tech explains how women—not just men—developed computer science. Programming isn't a male or female job, and remembering that is necessary to fix the tech industry’s gender gap.

For most of human history, men have been the dominant sex because of their capacity to compete, take risks, and fight for resources. But some claim these masculine traits have become obsolete. Today we need other qualities: empathy, social intuition, emotional intelligence. Here it appears that women excel. Some say men are just passe. Is this true?

Women are joining men as partners in running the world, but they are not replacing men and never will. Yes, women are flourishing in unprecedented ways. But men have hardly vanished from the scene. It is still men who are more likely to start businesses, file for patents, tell jokes, write editorials, conduct orchestras, and blow things up. Males succeed and fail more spectacularly than females: More males are Nobel laureates and CEOs. But more are also in maximum security prisons. Men commit most acts of wanton violence—but it usually takes other men to stop them. The male declinists seem to imagine a world of busy, consensus-building women, happily and competently interacting and managing the new economy. They point to the explosion of jobs in the caring, nurturing, and communicating professions: social workers, website designers, personal coaches, executive producers. Sorry to disturb this idyll, but you cannot sustain a network of nurturers and communicators without those hard-driven innovators, manufacturers, builders, and transporters—not to mention the military. And men still hold the lion's share of dangerous, dirty, and necessary jobs that few women seem to want. Men tend to be the truck drivers, builders, coal miners, and sewer workers. Are those jobs passé? We are told that toughness and assertiveness are obsolete. That is ridiculous—the world is as dangerous as ever. Think of China with all its millions of unattached young men, or those volatile patriarchal societies where radical Sharia law prevails. Our civilization still depends on the brave men who are willing to fight and die to protect us. Some brave and admirable women too, of course, but the warriors will mainly be men. Today women make up fifteen percent of active duty military personnel and very few of them want to be in combat—only about 7 percent of Army women, according to one survey. And consider science and technology. In fields like psychology, biology, and veterinary medicine, women are overtaking men. But those numbers don't hold in physics, computer science, and engineering, where men still prevail. In those fields, there's little sign of significant change. Several years ago, Hasbro Toys tested a furnished playhouse it was considering marketing to both boys and girls. But it soon became clear that that girls and boys did not interact with the structure in the same way. The girls dressed the dolls, kissed them, and played house; the boys catapulted the toy baby carriage from the roof. A Hasbro general manager came up with a brilliant explanation: Boys and girls are different. I would add that when they grow up, they complement one another. When parents take a child to a jungle gym, the mother typically says, "Be careful." The father, "Can you get to the top?" Today it's fashionable to claim that we no longer need the catapulters or the "can you get to the top" crowd. But we do. The cartoonist Nicole Hollander once asked, "Can you imagine a world without men?" Her answer, "There’d be no crime, and lots of happy fat women." Well, crime would certainly decline, and we'd probably put on a few pounds. But would we be happy? Not most of us. Women, alas, love men, and need them. Their fate is our fate—this is not a zero-sum competition. Men are not finished because neither men nor women will permit that to happen. Are Men Obsolete?
