This is statistically insignificant unless you compare this number to the number of women who actually apply vs the % of men in PwC cyber and # of men who’ve applied.

The security job pool remains heavily male dominated, though I see a lot more women in college programs specializing in security in recent years and at lower staff levels, both of which are prerequisites for improvement. More interesting would be trending statistics. Agree that improvements in retention of women at higher levels needs to improve, however this is a problem in both the IT industry and even broader in the corporate world, and hardly just in the security space.

D1 That’s a pretty bone headed statement and shows you clearly have no idea of the challenges associated with getting to the exec level when it’s 2-3x as difficult. It’s not about “sticking” around.

Where’d you get the 2-3x as difficult calculation? Sounds like a self-fulfilling prophecy to me. Do you think female partners who made it told themself it was much harder for them to make it? It may very well be harder but you’re not ever going to make it by telling yourself that.

Hm, weird. All the Associates and Seniors I see getting highlighted or given opportunities seem to be women.

I will say that while PwC has long way to go, it’s really great that they have these statistics and are transparent. I tried to get them from my firm and HR wouldn’t budge.

My two cents; at the higher levels (Partner/MD/Director) we need to continue to make progress on increasing those percentages. I would say it’s been a very top of mind discussion during and after CRTs, PCLDE planning, etc. and we are making progress. It’s one thing to look at these numbers in a vacuum instead of comparing to where the numbers were 4-5 years ago. I feel confident that we as a Firm are making steady progress; that said it needs to continue to be escalated.

So why is it that the college new hires from the worse schools generally have lower GPAs? It’s frustrating and counterintuitive that the students from VT or JMU are allowed to have a lackluster GPA
