Sci-Fi posters put women off tech jobs!
When you look around the IT dept at work you will notice a distinct lack of women working there, this of course has nothing to do with working with technology, what it does have to with is the type of person already working there.
According to a recent survey, one of the main reasons for the lack of women in the industry is more to do with science fiction than computer science.
For women there is nothing more off putting in the work place than empty games machines, coke cans and science fiction posters, amazing as it may seem science fiction gets into the places that other genres fail to reach.
However, on this occasion it seems that by displaying the love of sci-fi publically it has a detrimental effect on encouraging women into the IT industry.
