Data Scientists I have worked with have a heavy mathematics background ... I find it fascinating also but my mind is just not made for that kind of thinking :p

OP what was your degree in ? You may find that it's not as unrelated as you think.

One of the best devs I hired had a fine arts degree ! Diverse teams are the best teams.

I'm in IT too! I have been longest in .NET Software Development then I got promoted to Technical Leadership and Project Management. Currently a Business Analyst after moving here in Oz. It's true that this field is primarily dominated by men but women does excel too! I love and am proud to be in IT!

I work for a uni and the ratio of males to females is probably 60/40 now which is a good thing. Never really got my head around positive discrimination though. I suppose the end result is good, more women in IT, the way they get there, not so good?
