Barrie, NC-based web developer and entrepreneur Brian O’Brien is the latest business owner to embrace the female workforce in recent years.
In a statement to Engadgy, O’Briens stated, “I believe that we are now entering a golden age for female entrepreneurs, and that our success is a result of our leadership in building a community and our commitment to diversity.
I am thrilled to partner with BarrieWeb, a community-driven web development company, to bring our services to Barrie and surrounding areas.”
BarrieWeb’s site is a collaboration between O’Brian, his wife, and a community of female entrepreneurs.
O’Brendans company aims, among other things, to help women develop their technical skills, expand their knowledge base, and provide mentorship.
OBrien and his wife are also known for their support of female-owned businesses, including barbershop, beauty salon, and lingerie shop.
The O’Brains own a barbers shop and an apparel store, respectively, and are known for bringing in more than $20 million in annual sales.
O’Brendan says the company has hired an impressive team to assist with the launch.
“We’ve recruited a team of 20+ women to help us bring Barrie Web to life,” O’Connor said.
“The company has been built from the ground up around the needs of our women customers.
We are extremely excited about this opportunity to provide women with the support and encouragement they need to build the business of their dreams.”
Barrieweb is not the only business offering services for female developers to gain traction.
In May, a software startup called Gogogo announced it was looking for developers to join its team.
The Gogo app allows users to build web sites from scratch, and allows users access to their website’s source code.
Gogogo CEO and co-founder Lauren Dickson explained, “The idea behind the app was that we were going to let our customers build sites with a custom web app that we could upload and share.
The result was Gogoga.
The idea is to provide a platform for women to start their own businesses.”
Gogogo is not alone in offering services to help aspiring female developers, but the platform has seen a significant growth in the last year.
Gugo, for example, recently launched an app that allows users of its own site to add new content and update their website.
In addition to creating a web site, Gogos team provides support, marketing, and support for the site’s users, according to a spokesperson.
In fact, the spokesperson added that Goggo has over 1,000 registered users on the platform.
In a similar vein, Yandex.ru launched an official site last week.
The site’s goal is to make it easier for women interested in working in Russia’s information technology industry to find jobs, according a spokesperson for the company.
“Yandex provides women with a place to create their resumes, build their portfolio, and start a career,” the spokesperson stated.
“Our goal is that more women will start a company in Russia and be able to contribute to their country’s economy.”
Women are the most underrepresented group of people in technology, with women making up just 0.7 percent of all tech employees in the U.S. The gap is largely attributed to the fact that women in technology are less likely to have a college degree and are less than 20 percent of those with a STEM degree.
Additionally, women are also less likely than men to have advanced degrees in a number of fields, and more likely to be unemployed.
However, these issues have not deterred companies from embracing women as employees.
In the year 2014, Apple, Facebook, and Google introduced their first gender-neutral working conditions, while Uber announced a pay equity policy that would give women the same job titles as men.
The move also saw companies hire more women, with Microsoft, Amazon, and others hiring more women in 2015.
According to a study released by Catalyst, women accounted for about 7.5 percent of the tech workforce in the United States in 2014, up from about 5.3 percent in 2005.
That number is expected to grow in the coming years as companies continue to add more women to their ranks, according Toomey.
However the biggest obstacle to women’s advancement is simply the perception of discrimination in tech.
“There are a lot of people who think that women don’t want to work in technology,” Toomeys said.
“It’s hard to find a female engineer or a female programmer who would say that.
They are just not in the same boat.”
