Why are women leaving the tech industry in droves?

"Women in tech say filling the pipeline of talent won't do much good if women keep quitting — it's like trying to fill a leaking bucket.

'It's a really frustrating thing,' said Laura Sherbin, director of research at the Center for Talent Innovation. 'The pipeline may not improve much unless women can look ahead and see it's a valuable investment.'

A Harvard Business Review study from 2008 found that as many as 50% of women working in science, engineering and technology will, over time, leave because of hostile work environments."
