So why is the technology industry a great place for women to work? According to Lynn, the people working in the industry aren’t just the stereotypical coders anymore. The image of a ‘tech worker’ has evolved to include a variety of people, experiences, and job positions. Working in tech today requires creativity and dedication, and the industry offers significant learning opportunities and a level of flexibility that’s hard to match.
