Abstract: The recruitment of female talent is a challenge for the whole economy and especially for the most innovative branches. In this article we analyze the presence of women in the innovative firms of the ICT related sectors. The data of the Technological Innovation Survey are appropriated to find out some relevant characteristics of the human resources in innovative activities. This information indicates that, although women are scarce in the ICTsector, they nevertheless improve their position in the high technology sectors.The culture of the innovative companies in ICTsector seems relevant to reinforce the presence and improve the position of women. The benchmark among areas shows that some sectors have adopted new patterns according to the new position of women in the knowledge economy and the science and technology activities.
