Glamour mag: Microsoft’s Julie Larson-Green a future tech legend?

Glamour magazine has a list of women in tech who could possibly become the next great tech legend — including Julie Larson-Green, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of program management for Windows.

The piece, written by AllThingsD’s Kara Swisher, points out that even though women make up 48 percent of the U.S. workforce, they hold just 24 percent of the jobs in science, tech, engineering and math.

Larson-Green is featured in a list that also includes Polyvore co-founder Jess Lee and Bitly chief scientist Hilary Mason.

The great thing women bring to tech, she says in the Glamour piece, is “a different experience of what technology can do in daily life.”
