Bloomberg Technology, through an article last January by Simmons and Green, pegs that at current rate, it will take 170 YEARS TO ACHIEVE GENDER PARITY IN TECH JOBS. In fact the gradual decline of women in tech was a topic of concern at the recently concluded World Economic Forum. This is an alarming situation, especially given a tech-oriented present and even more, future. This is one major reason why we absolutely love the unprecedently gender-neutral, open source littleB...its and their founder, Ayah Bdeir. With her extraordinary vision and tenacity, Ayah and her team are breaking down the barriers to technology, enabling both girls and boys equal opportunity to build amazing electronic inventions not tomorrow, but today. This is also the reason why at our makerspace, littleBits is extensively utilized across genders and generations. littleBits should definitely be in every classroom and household. PM us on how to do just that.
