Data collected on Github showed that the percentage of female engineers at Qualcomm's development center in Austin was 5.5 per cent. At Dropbox it's 6.3 per cent, at Yelp 8.3 per cent, at Airbnb 13.2 per cent and 14.4 per cent at Pinterest.

Toronto Star
Canada's labour market staged a modest comeback last month, but the good news was tempered by the fact all 25,800 net new jobs were part-time and many likely temporary as the first wave of students entered the summer job market.

How much less does a female grad earn? A look at Harvard's class of 2014
The Globe and Mail
A Harvard diploma still means more earning power for male graduates — even when their female peers enter the same field. According to the annual senior survey conduced by the Harvard University's campus newspaper The Crimson, the graduating class of 2014 does all right in the big scheme of things.
