According to Dice's analysis of data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than half of new tech jobs created in 2013 year-to-date have been filled by women.

Through September of this year, there have been 39,900 jobs created in tech consulting and of those, 24,100 positions have gone to women.

Shravan Goli, President of Dice, comments on the findings:

“Companies have been focusing on getting more women into technology for a long time.   This year those efforts appear to be paying off – with 60 percent of new tech jobs created in 2013 filled by women, according to government statistics.  To have the best tech organization, companies want to pull from the entire talent pool and we need to do more to get young girls thinking about technology careers early and often.  That’s why Dice is supporting efforts like Code.org and Donors Choose to reach the next Marissa Mayer and may there be many of them.” – Shravan Goli, President of Dice.
