<< In the telecommunications industry there is always a severe shortage of
"good" technical writers maybe that's why there is no discrimination.
When I was still in the programming world, I noticed that there were far more
minorities and immigrants. Also, not only were there a lot of women, but
there were a lot of women who'd worked in the field long enough to have
reached very high positions (for a long time, the head of Chase's Corporate
Operations and Systems group was a woman.)

When a skill is rare, it's much harder for a company to discriminate. No
matter what their corporate mindset.
