Female CIOs Will Be Needed Within the Next Decade

This article is based on higher education technology leadership and CIO research conducted by Wayne A. Brown from the Center for Higher Education Chief Information Officer Studies Inc. The survey was sponsored by CDW-G, Dell, edu1world, Excelsior College and SunGard Higher Education. Women have historically been under-represented in the technology profession, especially in executive roles. But one bright spot for female CIOs has been higher education, where the gender difference hasn’t been as great. In fact, the percentage of higher education CIOs who were women (23 percent in 2010) is close to the percentage of women receiving advanced degrees in computer and information sciences in 2006-2007. Our latest research indicates, however, that the situation may be poised to take a turn for the worse.
