OMG - I just read this article by…
” Forbes reported that once women land jobs in the tech field, they leave at a 45% higher rate than men. There are lots of completely qualified, brilliant women who choose to take their talent and use it elsewhere. The reasons for the higher attrition in the tech industry for women are many, though data points to the unconscious bias that nudges women towards the door.”

Re-entering the workforce doesn’t mean you have to accept less compensation than your male counterparts. “Yes” – you’re anxious about the gap in your resume, or perhaps that your skills aren’t as current as the same folks vying for the same position as you. This does not mean that you need to walk into an interview expecting to be paid less than you’re worth. Spend some time with JoAnn’s block post and deepen your understanding around the compensation conversation when it comes to securing your next job.
