The tech industry is experiencing a massive gender imbalance with only 7% of positions being filled by women. This lack of female representation is greatly restricting the industry with evidence suggesting it affects many elements of a company’s success.
Having a diverse workforce is vital to improving processes and aiding innovation. A key issue here, is unconscious bias. If companies are led by a majority of men, it may mean there are fewer opportunities for women and a lack of representation for women, making it harder for women to have a successful career in tech.
As well as this, a male-dominated industry can result in female-orientated products not gaining the same improvements and attention as products aimed towards men. A more diverse workforce means making sure everyone has the same opportunity to get involved and to contribute to a business, their ideas, and products. There is a wealth of opportunities for women to break through the underlying stereotypes and make a positive impact with technology.
Learning People is an online training company with the aim of closing this gender gap
and helping women to achieve their dream jobs in the tech industry.
