Okay to block opportunities for male students just so female students get the chance in tech?
Background: This itatechchallenge.com used to be for every student (I was in the top 5 winners in one of the previous years). There used to be both male and female students among the finalists. This is a big event in the midwest. You would get interviews for internships and jobs because you made it to the final round, and you get to interact with the hiring managers of 30+ companies which sponsored the tech challenge event.
Now, this is strictly for female students. It is so demoralizing for male students in the midwest. And the current description says - "competition for current female-identifying students in the U.S."
