Unleashing the Power of Diversity in Tech
Wednesday 22 June 16:15 - 16:45 Inspiration Stage
It's no secret that technology drives innovation, yet women make up fewer than 25 percent of the technology jobs shaping our collective future. At top technology companies, that statistic is closer to 10 or 15 percent. What’s more, the gender gap in technology has been getting worse. In 1990, women held 35 percent of technology jobs.
What’s going on? And how do we fix it?
This seminar will explore why female participation in technology is falling and will unpack the many factors at play -- from persistent stereotypes about male superiority to systemic barriers in the education system and the workplace.
Discover how to reverse this trend and the strategies bringing more women into technology. Gain a glimpse into a future where more women in tech unlocks more innovation and big leaps forward for all of us.
