As part of our Women in IT series this month on the Cisco Learning Network, we've compiled a host of articles, media and resources. Women in IT: Educational Resources contains links to video, interviews, and articles chronicling the increasingly important role women are playing in every facet of IT. Check out Girls Get Networking, a Cisco initiative enabling young women in France and the UK to see what working at Cisco is like.


The newest additions are a podcast interview with Sheila Jordan, Cisco VP of Communication and Collaboration IT, who shares insights on mentorship and risk-taking as keys to her wildly successful career at Cisco, and a podcast interview with Merilee Ford, Cisco program manager for the strategic content development group, who lets us in on how she's thrived in her 15-year (and still going) career with Cisco.

The page is a work in progress with new content being added all the time, so please visit often and post a comment with your recommendations for links to information, video, podcasts, and websites about women in IT.
