    Good interview discussing an important issue. I’d just like to point out there is more then one sort of discrimination that comes from the stereotypes discussed.

    I had know idea that Women Who Code had the largest membership there’s some other groups with large memberships. Where would you find a list of them and their membership numbers?

    The stereotype are young individuals and typically white as well. Senior Developer term was mentioned and different ways of measuring. I’ve seen ads where 5 years of experience warrants a senior position, are their any other fields where you become senior so quickly?

    There is a lot of research on how to get women/girls more interested in the field, google for it. There’s also retention issues as well and all the efforts to get more women interested in the field may go to waste if the retention issues are not addressed — again google.
