Catherine Petronino Posted over 1 year ago Take a chance on women in technology I'm not disagreeing with Brendan, but I still think its sad that companies won't invest in training (for women and for men). I live in the uk, although I'm American,and I do feel that the equality between sexes is closer here than in the US, but when it comes to engineering/ tech jobs it is still a very narrow field. The difficulty is that everyone complains that there aren't enough qualified people, but companies don't want to invest in making people qualified. It leads to no loyalty of employees to companies and no loyalty of companies towards employees. How can that possibly be sustainable when a typical engineering or tech project takes 5-10 years from start to finish?
