I'm proud to be able to say that in my company we have a 50:50 gender split.

I've worked in several financial services companies in the past and the "split" was nowhere as even, probably 70/30 to the male side. If anything, I'm personally seeing the Tech companies as being much move evenly spread with regards to gender.

Men and Women bring different things to the team and I'd be the first to admit that we would not be as strong a team and business without a more even split.

So, making a conscious decision to recruit people from both sides I feel is very important to keep the work environment balanced and therefore the product or service. If you are a business owner or team leader take a look at the stats and re-balance.
