National Science Foundation Study of Men and Women in the IT Workplace

In partnership with the National Science Foundation and the University of Massachusetts Lowell, the Council is participating in Project TechForce: Women and Men in Information Technology Workplace, a ground-breaking study to explore IT professionals' experiences in the workplace.

The study was launched with a web-based survey of all companies listed in the Council's industry directory, The Complete Guide to the Massachusetts Software & Internet Industry as well as 200 interviews with men and women working in software and Internet companies.

The findings will establish the nation's first systematic research and database concerning women and men in the IT industry. The study will also furnish baseline information about the role of women in science and technology, IT workplaces, and the supportive, flexible corporate cultures that are supportive of innovation and entrepreneurship.
