Women in Computer Sciences.
Rose, Clare; Menninger, Sally Ann
The keynote address of a conference that focused on the future of women in science and engineering fields and the opportunities available to them in the computer sciences is presented. Women's education in the sciences and education and entry into the job market in these fields has steadily been increasing. Excellent employment opportunities are available for women in computer occupations, a relatively new field. Programmers and system analysts will continue to be needed as an increasing number of hospitals automate food services and computerize patient records, and tremendous growth is also expected in education. Service bureaus and computer maintenance firms will also contribute heavily to the overall growth of computer occupations in industry. State and local governments will be developing consolidated systems serving a greater variety of information processing needs and will increase to a great extent their use of terminal networks and other data communications technology in their operations. The field of computer science is expanding and computer technology is being applied innovatively in a wide range of creative areas such as dance, literature, and history. Abilities of individuals in the computer sciences and some advantages of working in this field are noted. (SW)
