Apology

It’s clear from the numerous comments that our response to Tim didn’t go far enough.  We really want everyone to know that we at ITA hear you and we get it.  In our attempt to be clever, we missed the negative signal that our ad conveyed.

We sincerely apologize for any role our ad may have had reinforcing negative stereotypes about women.  That is the something we truly regret. ITA is proud of the diversity of our workforce, and we support many programs aimed at encouraging careers for women in science and technology.  This is very important to us, and you have our commitment that we will not make this kind of mistake again.
