Women in IT: Strategies of Inclusion

Computers play a growing role in the evolution of our societies, but women have been largely under-represented in these professions for several decades. The figure of the geek is often used as a scapegoat in the sense that it carries the representations that would lead women to avoid the field. In reality, research shows a life long phenomenon of social censorship excluding girls and women from science and technology, especially computer science. Thanks to systemic good practices, some universities have obtained long-term success in reducing gender gap in computer science. The purpose of this intervention is to point out useless (or poorly efficient practices) and also present effective practices to think of the inclusion of women in the professional world of informatics as a change of culture and practices.
