As one looks around in the New Economy and IT sphere there are, without a doubt, fewer women than one would expect. Bringing this up again may seem like an "old chestnut" . . . I may not say anything new, and I may not offer solutions - but I still believe this is worth talking about because in an industry that, more than most, complains of lack of talented people to hire, the question of why a large percentage of potential hires aren't being properly utilised should stay on the agenda until the situation genuinely changes.
