While there will no doubt be much useful information shared, the program highlights (hopefully unwittingly) the gender skew in technology, even in an industry where women are well-represented as workers.

The lack of licensing for real estate agents in Spain means there are no hard statistics on the percentage of female agents, but in the U.S. more than 60 percent of realtors are women. It is fair to assume that women are at least proportionally represented in Spain, so it is a shame to see a lack of representation on the technology side.
