In the last year, technology firms hired more women than men, CNNMoney reported. Long a male-dominated industry, the tech industry added 60,000 jobs in the past 12 months, and 36,000 of those positions went to women, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Men typically make up 70 to 80 percent of new hires. It's too soon to call it a trend, said Shravan Goli, president of, in an interview with CNNMoney, but there is momentum from increased awareness of the issue and the emergence of women such as Google Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg. Overall, though, women still make up less than one-third of all employees in the sector.
