Doubling Down to Double Up
Paper: Doubling Down to Double Up
Description: It’s a challenge reported by most technology companies: the extreme difficulty finding enough qualified people to do all the work that needs to be done. And it is only going to get more difficult.
In this IM Thoughts paper, we lay out a solution that is simple in nature yet will take hard work and dedication to achieve: we can double the number of resources available to the infrastructure industry by bringing the representation of women and minorities in our ranks to social parity.
Contributors: IM Women had its first official meeting on July 27, 2017. The conversation among participants, who are listed below, provided inspiration for this paper.
