Women in IT field

Question:  In the world of information technology and software development, the workforce consists mainly of men. How can working in this field be made more attractive for women? How can this field be restructured to become more balanced?

Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at the 2020 Webinar for the Liberation of Women.

Well, the field cannot necessarily become more balanced in the sense that it will be difficult to create an environment where there’s an equal number of men and women. Because computing, as it is currently done, appeals more to the rational, intellectual, linear mind because computing operates with a dual system, binary system, of on and off signals. But there is a concept today called quantum computing where there is the attempt to develop a new type of computer that can perform more calculations based on the principles discovered through quantum physics.

I can assure you that the reason why not enough progress has been made in this field is that you primarily have male programmers who are attempting to program these quantum computers, but a quantum computer cannot be based on a binary system with only two values, it must have more values. That means there needs to be a different, a more holistic, more intuitive approach to computing and women are more suited to do this.

Now, whether you can make women make the decision to go into this field instead of using their skills in other areas is another question. There will of course also be men who could develop this ability, but I can assure you that quantum computing will not really take off until you change from a binary approach to programming to a more nuanced approach that incorporates other values. One way to do this is to look at how the brain processes information because the brain is not binary but can operate with many more values than just on and off.
