I worked with a couple of of girls that could REALLY code at Lotus. I believe both might now currently work at Yahoo. They were both bloody geniuses at programming. Some of the fastest and most solid engineers on my team. If I needed something done really fast and accurately coded, they were my first drafts.
Not so surprisingly, some of the other men managing other groups didn't see the same talent in them I did simply because of their sex. Their loss, my gain, and it's really sad those attitudes still exist.
In retrospect, I think my engineering team had more women than the other teams.
Considering I was doing the hiring, wonder how that happened?
So if you want to put yourself out of a job, encourage them. ;)
