+ - How to be a CIO and a Woman->

Submitted by CowboyRobot
CowboyRobot (671517) writes "A recent panel at the recent Michigan Council for Women in Technology, Karenann Terrell, CIO of Wal-Mart, had advice for women pursuing technical careers. "Take credit for what you do. There's a strange dynamic of credit deflection that takes place with women," Terrell said. Even when she asks women directly about their contributions to a project or other initiative, they'll default to discussing the team. "There's a feeling of dirtiness that exists with women about taking credit even when directly asked about it," she said. That deflection can lead managers to conclude that maybe those women didn't do more than facilitate."
