    What's the gender ratio in your department?

    What's the ratio of men:women in your department? Mainly of interest are technical departments, i.e. network management as oppose to teaching.

    1:1 - there's only 2 of us! Hold on, you say not teaching? The NM is IT teacher - does that make it 1:0 (F:M)?!

    Oh, I meant to say: closest approximation applies


    edit: ohhh, why did I even think this was going to be simple?

    I am my own department so a ratio seems to be an overcomplecated metric in my case, and what if I refuse to grow up?

    I participated anyway.

    Three of us in IT Support: 2 male: 1 female.

    For a long time it was 1:1.

    All non-teaching.

    4 chaps here, no lassies. Shame, really. Could do with a woman in the dept if only to help cut down on the burping and parping

    /slightly sexist remark.

    Currently employed in my dept, it's all male. However the previous IT manager was female (she left and I was promoted), we also have a female vounteer, but as she not employed I haven't counted her in the poll.

    No teaching staff in my dept (use to be), however we do have strong links with the ICT academic dept

    All women But then there's only me. As a school we have men in 2 full-time posts and 2 part-time posts, so men are rather outnumbered.

    office with 5 blokes.

    age breakdown

    2 of us are old f*rts (we've both worked with paper tape and in lucid moments remember the good old days of IT...?)
    2 are youngish (early 20's)
    1 is still wet behind the ears
