WHO WE ARE...
RedChairATL is in support of women’s meaningful participation in computing and technology. The statistics are alarming. “In 2015, women held 57% of all professional occupations, yet they held only 25% of all computing occupations. And the numbers are even lower when considering women of color; for example, Latinas and Black women hold only 1% and 3% of these jobs, respectively. Furthermore, even fewer women are found in software development, technology leadership, or the other kinds of key roles that have a significant influence on future innovation”. – Women In Tech: The Facts, 2016 Update, The National Center for Women & Information Technology
As a #sitwithme event, RedChairATL invites you to validate and recognize the important role women play in creating future technology by taking a small but symbolic action: sit in a red chair and share your story.
Sit With Me was created by members of the National Center for Women & Information Technology, a non-profit coalition that works to increase the meaningful participation of girls and women in computing fields and careers.
