Becoming a master of math
It may not be a tech degree, but it is an extension of my math BA, so woo more math! I like learning the fundementals and learning on the job.
I want to see people just be people. Children taught in schools that every career field is viable, so that employers can just hire the best candidate.
I don't see iniciatives in the workplace as a way to help solve representation. While it's well and good to want to hire women as much as men, I personally hate to see women in tech groups formed to find ways to recruit more women. That further reinforces that men and women are split in the workplace (if I have to hear "why aren't you going to their meetings?" one more time...).
Instead, I wish there were more organizations fighting for representation in schools to encourage girls to see that there's more options than getting a "Mrs Degree" and being a stay at home parent. That was the only option known when I was in high school in 2010. And I wouldn't be surprised if that's still the culture at that school in 2019. I didn't need to see companies with stock photos of every shape and color of candidate -- I never would have even looked for those companies in the first place.
