What it takes to be a digital woman

This document discusses the challenges faced by women in digital careers and leadership positions. It provides statistics showing that women remain underrepresented in technology jobs, accounting for only 19% of founders of all firms and 3% of tech founders. The document suggests possible reasons for this, including a hostile workplace culture, isolation, long work hours that conflict with family responsibilities, and outright sexism. It argues that digital women can help advance their careers by leading based on their expertise, encouraging internal networks, creating online professional groups, and using digital platforms to differentiate themselves and influence change.
