This chapter examines the reasons for the underrepresentation of women in the IT workforce. It reviews the (scant) literature that reports research results on the transition of women from the academic world into the IT workforce. It also tries to broaden the discussion of women in the IT workforce by setting the issue in larger contexts, such as the search for innovative environments, national economic welfare, and homeland defense. The chapter is divided into two parts. Part 1 reviews the relevant research and discusses future research needs, while part 2 considers the larger context of policy relevance.

Keywords:   IT workforce, homeland defense, underrepresentation
