An Open Letter to IBM CEO Virginia Rometty
People like to kick up a fuss about sexism in tech and how this contributes to a lack of women in the field, whether that's through badly promoted "perks" at hackathons, over-abundance of alcohol at events or scantily clad women in promo videos, etc. But do you want to know why there's sexism in tech? Because it comes from society at large, and even at the very top, we allow it to happen. Traditionally, the Augusta National Golf Club has bestowed honorary green jackets representing membership to the club upon the CEOs of its three main television sponsors for the U.S. Masters – except for this year. Virginia Rometty is the current CEO of IBM, and so far has not been given membership – like every other CEO before her, solely because she is a woman.
