Big changes in the technology world, a growing number of women are getting hired. In the past year, the tech industry brought on 60-thousand new workers and 36-thousand are women. That's about 60-percent and it's a huge shift.

In the past, men have traditionally made up 70 to 80-percent of new hires, but is it a trend? Analysts say it's too soon to tell. Are the tides turning, largely because of notable women hires, most recently Marissa Mayer, the CEO of Yahoo? Those executives are raising awareness about the lack of women in the tech industry, but there's more work to be done. Men still make up the bulk of the workforce in the technology sector, about two-thirds of all employees.
