Grace Ho Brosnon of Tacoma has worked in IT since 1993. The IT manager for the city counts herself among the 50 percent of women who told researchers with the Pew Research Center that they have experienced discrimination.
“There’s clearly gender discrimination,” said Brosnon to AsAmNews. “However, often, the individuals doing the discrimination do not even recognize it. I’ve had several people comment that my English is really good which is sort of weird if you think about it. Nobody would ever say that to a White person.”
