If you think women in tech is just a pipeline problem, you haven't been paying attention
According to the Harvard Business Review, 41% of women working in tech eventually end up leaving the field (compared to just 17% of men). When researcher Kieran Snyder interviewed 716 women who left tech after an average tenure of 7 years, almost all of them said they liked the work itself, but cited discriminatory environments as their main reason for leaving. In NSF-funded research, Nadya Fouad surveyed 5,300 women who had earned engineering degrees (of all types) over the last 50 years, and only 38% of them are still working as engineers.

How Does the Physical Environment Affect Women's Entry and Persistence in Computing? Design Physical Space that Has Broad Appeal
The decor of physical spaces conveys messages about the kinds of people who belong there and the kinds of activities that should be done there. Understanding this influence allows us to actively craft an environment that makes a broad range of people feel welcome in computing. The Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington opened in 2003. The building was intended to be warm, welcoming, and 'non-techy' in appearance, applying principles supported by research on stereotypes and the environment. Combined with the department's other diversity initiatives, the building may be accomplishing its goal. The department has seen increases in women's representation at a time when peer institutions saw declines.
