From the article: "African-Americans are proportionally less represented in IT than they are in other professions. African-Americans represent 6.5 percent of employed IT managers and staff professionals but 11 percent of all types of managers and staff professionals. However, 16.3 percent of Asians hold IT managerial and professional staff jobs versus 4.6 percent of overall managerial and professional staff jobs in the U.S. Citing other research, CIO Insight reports that a majority of surveyed African-American IT managers have considered leaving their jobs over the previous 12 months. Fewer than half saw the possibility of career advancement in IT.""
