    The Unexpected Entry and Exodus of Women in Computing and HCI in India

    Divy Thakkar*, Nithya Sambasivan*, Purva Yardi, Pratap Kalenahalli Sudarshan, Kentaro Toyama

    SIGCHI, ACM, In India, women represent 45\% of total computer science enrollment in universities, almost three times the rate in the United States, where it is 17\%. At the same time, women make up an estimated 25-30\% of the HCI community in India, almost half the rate in the U.S. We investigate the complexities of these surprising phenomena through qualitative research of Indian computer science and human-computer interaction researchers and professionals at various life stages, from undergraduates to senior scientists. We find that cultural norms exert a powerful force on the representation of women in the tech sector, which is expressed in India as a societal whiplash in which women are encouraged to go into computing as students, but then expected to exit soon after they enter the tech workforce. Specifically, we find among other things that Indian familial norms play a significant role in pressuring young women into computing as a field; that familial pressures and workplace discrimination then cause a precipitous exit of women from computing at the onset of marriage; and that HCI occupies an interstitial space between art and technology that affects women's careers. Our findings underscore the societal influence on women's representation in the tech sector and invite further participation by the HCI community in related questions. (2018) (to appear)

  • Google pulled the plug on its Outlook calendar sync utility years ago, so what's the alternative? We explain how to sync Google and Outlook calendars, and workarounds so you don't have to.

    Can I sync Google and Outlook calendars?

    First ask yourself if you really need to sync Google and Outlook calendars. You might think you do, but there are several alternative approaches which might solve your problem.

    For example, if you have an iPhone, Android phone or just about any other phone, you should be able to add multiple accounts and therefore multiple calendars.

    This approach usually means that Google and Outlook calendars appear together in the same app. This isn't syncing, but it does mean you can see two or more calendars in the same app and same view. 

    If you're using a PC or laptop with the Outlook application in Windows, it could be time to ditch it and move to the online version,, which supports multiple calendars. 

    There are several other advantages of using an online email / calendar service: you can log on from any computer with an internet connection, and you don't have any syncing issues as everything is stored online. 

    Pick just one

    Using two calendars services from two different companies can lead to problems and it's worth considering using only one, if at all possible. We understand that it's useful to use multiple email providers, but when it comes to your calendar, why not just pick one and use just that?

    It simplifies scheduling appointments and events and solves the sync problem instantly. Both Google and Microsoft support multiple calendars, such as work and private, and offer single calendar or combined views. (This applies whether you're using a mobile device or a PC or laptop, by the way.)

    When adding a new event, you can choose which calendar to add it to. This is the only complication, as it's all too easy to add an event to the wrong calendar. But at least you'll have no problems with syncing.

    How to export a Google calendar

    To export events from Google Calendar you'll need to use the web version on a PC or Mac. Click the drop-down menu next to the relevant calendar in the My Calendars section on the left and choose Calendar Settings. Then scroll down and click Export this calendar. It downloads as a zip, so copy the .ics file out.

    Google recently updated the design, so if you're using the new version, click the three dots to the right of one of your calendars, then click Settings and sharing.

    Now click Import & export near the top of the left-hand menu and you'll see an option to export all your calendars as a zip file.

    How to import Google Calendar to Outlook

    To import Google Calendar into the Outlook Windows application, go to File, Open and export, Import and export. Select the option to import an iCalendar (.ics) file.

    You might also like to check out 11 ways to use Google Calendar like a pro.

    Can I export an Outlook calendar?

    To export your Outlook calendar (from the Outlook application), go to File, Open and export, Import and export. Select Export to a file and save it to a .csv file. To import it into Google Calendar, click the down arrow next to Other calendars and select Import calendar.

    Again, if you're seeing the redesigned 2018 version of Google Calendar in your browser, then click the three dots to the right of one of your calendars, then Settings and sharing. The import option will appear at the top left. Alternatively, click the + button next to 'Add a colleague's calendar'.

    How to import a calendar with

    If you use the Calendar section of, you can't export, but you can import.

    To do that, click 'Add calendar' then choose 'From file' in the menu and navigate to your Google Calendar .ics file to import it.

    How to view both calendars


    On an Android phone or tablet, install the free Microsoft Outlook app from the Google Play Store. (You can't simply add a Microsoft or Outlook account in the Android 'add account' setting, unfortunately. You can try adding an Exchange account, but it doesn't work with all Microsoft accounts.)

    When you first install it on your phone a message pops asking you if you want to link it to other account, including Gmail. Choose this, and your calendars are synced.

    iPhone & iPad

    The Calendar app on an iPhone and iPad can display a combined Google Calendar and Outlook Calendar too. Go to Settings, Mail, Contacts, Calendars and tap Add Account.

    Use the options to add Google and accounts. Accept the offer to sync calendars and that’s it. Events added to Google Calendar, Calendar or Outlook if it’s synced with, automatically appear in the iOS Calendar app.

    Reader poll

    Use invitations

    One way to make an appointment appear in both Google and Outlook calendars simultaneously is to simply invite yourself by entering your email address when creating a new event. You basically create a meeting with yourself, so in Google Calendar you would invite yourself by adding your Outlook or email address.

    Outlook adds a calendar invitation from Google as an unconfirmed event. You can leave it like this or click the Accept button in the email to confirm it. does not automatically add invitations to the calendar and you have to click Accept in the email.

    You can manually accept emailed invitations sent from Outlook/ to Google Calendar in Gmail, but there is a better way. Click the gear button in Google Calendar and selecting Settings. On the General tab is an option to automatically add invitations to your calendar.

    Third-party apps and services

    If you don’t want to use any of our workarounds, there are apps and services that sync Google and Outlook calendars. Here are a few of them you might like to try, some of which are free.

    SyncGene can sync contacts, calendars and tasks automatically across iPhone, Android, Outlook, Gmail and apps. There is a free version which is limited to two data sources and does not offer automatic syncing, but a paid-for subscription works out at $4.95 per month. If you do subscribe, bear in mind there's a 14-day refund policy, so ensure you're happy before that time is up.

    Sync2 (image below) syncs Outlook with Google Calendar and does a lot more besides for £29.95. It can sync on a schedule or whenever a change in Outlook is detected.

    OggSync does a similar job and v8.1 fixes sync problems introduced by changes at Google, but costs $29.95 a year.

    gSyncit v4 is a $19.99 Outlook add-in that enables one and two-way syncing between Outlook and Google calendar, but doesn't appear to have been updated for over a year.

    Yet another option is Scand Outlook4Gmail which syncs your Outlook calendar with your Google calendar. It can also sync contacts and a single licence costs $28.98. 

    Free options

    Calendar Sync appears to be the perfect replacement for the old Google sync tool for Outlook users. It’s a free app that is very easy to use and does exactly what you want. Enter your Google username and password and click Save Settings. Click Sign in to Google at the bottom to authorise it.

    Now you can select the Google calendar to sync, if there is more than one, and whether Google or Outlook is the master calendar. A two-way sync by last modified date is possible and you can choose to delete duplicates in Outlook or Google. The Auto Sync tab enables you to sync automatically, but don’t sync too often because Google imposes limits.

    Some people like Calendar Sync, while others says it causes problems. 

    Another option is Outlook Google Calendar Sync, which is in beta and was last updated in September 2016. It is supported, and can sync events including attendees and reminders. It doesn't have to be installed and works behind web proxies.
