Survey: For Women In Tech, New Orleans Tops Silicon Valley

U.S. Embassy Tel Aviv
A survey by the group SmartAsset lists New Orleans among the top ten best cities for women working in the technology field.

Slate magazine recently reported on a survey by the group SmartAsset, listing the best cities for women working in the technology field.

Some of the surprising findings: Cities in Silicon Valley ranked far below some others with less well-known tech communities – including New Orleans. The survey ranked New Orleans number seven overall on the list of best American cities for women in tech.

WWNO's Tech and Innovation reporter Janaya Williams talked about the results of the survey with Wendy Dolan, the founder of Get Online NOLA, and a board member of  New Orleans Women in Technology.
