For these IT workers, it is not just about earning a living but about applying their technological, scientific and engineering skills and knowledge. Doing IT demonstrates that women fill a wide variety of these technological occupations, yet continue to face barriers preventing them from reaching their full professional potential. Scott-Dixon examines the IT environment's traditional workplace that keeps gender, race, class, ability and pay inequities firmly in place. Drawing on personal interviews, she shows that despite these barriers, women in IT bring passion to their jobs and draw on their wit, intelligence and creative resourcefulness to shape their career paths. Doing IT is an invigorating conversation among women in search of greater employment opportunities."--Amazon.ca."@en ;
