There is a considerable body of research to support the longstanding problem of a gender imbalance in the ICT industry (Ahuja, 2002; Baroudi & Igbaria, 1994; Cukier, Shortt, & Devine, 2002; D’agostini, 2003; Frenkel, 1991; Moody, Beise, Woszczynski, & Myers, 2003; Nielsen, von Hellens, & Wong, 2000; Nielsen, von Hellens, & Wong, 2001). However it appears there has been little attempt to draw it together to inform the influences and impacts that many women face when employed in the industry. The objective of this article is to examine research focussing on two factors that have impacted on the experiences of women who have established careers in the ICT industry.
