While IT occupations are projected to grow by up to 50% by 2018 in the U.S., the ratio of IT women engineers has decreased from 36% in 1991 to 25% in 2009.
56% of women in technology companies leave their organizations at the mid-level point (10-20 years) in their careers (source: Hewlett et al, The Athena Factor)

Women graduating with a bachelor’s degree in computer science dropped from 27% in 1985 to 14% in 2010

“In a study of more than 100 teams at 21 companies, teams with equal numbers of women and men were more likely (than teams of any other composition) to experiment, be creative, share knowledge, and fulfill tasks.” (source: London Business School, Innovative potential: Men and women in teams.)

A NCWIT study shows that teams comprising women and men produce IT patents that are cited 26–42 percent more often than the norm for similar types of patents (source: Ashcraft & Breitzman, Who Invents IT?)
