Abstract

The purpose of this session is to take stock of the gender and IT research being conducted within the SIGMIS community about factors affecting women's participation in the IT workforce. The ultimate goal is to better understand where we have been and where we need to go in the future with this research. The moderator, Eileen Trauth, will provide the introduction to this session, its rationale, and the four questions that each participant will address. She will begin by explaining her own research interest in gender and IT. All of the participants have developed extended abstracts about their research on gender and IT that appear below. Each participant will briefly summarize her research interests, methods, theories and findings. This phase will be followed by a general discussion of the questions with the audience.
