Women in IT speak out

There’s been no shortage of articles written in the last 15 years about the lack of women in high places in IT.

Recently two high-powered execs – Cynthia Stoddard, CIO of NetApp and Rebecca Jacoby, CIO at Cisco Systems Inc. – spoke to the San Francisco Bay Area Women in Business about how to succeed in the industry.
