  • Synopsis

    Although there have been reported improvements in closing the traditional gender disparity prevalent in tech within the last decade, the hard work is far from over. This gap continues to manifest itself through various aspects, including employment opportunities, wages, access to leadership opportunities, and even perception in the workplace.

    To get a better understanding of the size of this challenge, we first need to cast our sights back; far before women begin their forays into the professional space, when their interests in various fields are developing, and ideas are still being formed. According to PWC’s Women in Tech report, young women still in school are not considering technology careers as they are not given enough information on what working in the sector involves and this is highlighted further as 84% claimed no one is putting it forward as an option to them. This alleged lack of interest is further reinforced by a shortage of female role models as only 22% could name a famous woman working in the tech industry.

    There clearly is a lot more work to be done if this is how the next generation of the workforce feel. So, the question becomes how can we bring about longstanding, meaningful change? The first step is to increase the visibility of female role models across all levels by putting them forward to speak at forums such as this.

    Join our panel of female tech leaders as they share their experiences, provide useful industry information, and help guide the next generation of tech superstars.
