Today, I am asking for a favor:

I’m working on a new technical career trends report for one of my industry news publications regarding women in STEM careers (science, tech, engineering, math), and I am trying to get a consensus from “real” people in the field regarding what their perception is of the current status of women in these roles. (I’m tired of hearing what the “experts” say; I’d like to hear from those in the trenches.)

I’ve put together a very short poll to gather this data. Would you take 10 seconds and take it for me? All you have to do is click on the response below that best sums up your perception of women and their chances in the tech arena:

Your answers are anonymous, and I won’t even know if you took it. So thank you in advance for doing so!
