Working Towards Gender Diversity In The Tech Industry
When you’re talking with women who work in tech, nearly half of them will let you know they were intimidated by the unequal split between genders in the staff of the companies they work at – all part of Kaspersky’s recent Women in Tech report, Where are we now? Understanding the evolution of women in technology.
In March of this year, as part of International Women’s Day celebrations, Kaspersky discussed the findings of this report in detail and talked about the challenges women have to overcome in the industry. This report focused on gender diversity within the technology industry, across 19 global markets. In Australia the survey covered 250 women and 250 men respectively. Take a look at the report here for more info.
In summing up in her forward to the report, Evgeniya Naumova, Vice President of Global Sales Network, Kaspersky, said:
Companies can only benefit from having diversity in their workforces, and digital competencies are helping to close the gender gap between men and women, broadening career prospects. Our present and future depends on technology, and we all have to play an equal role. In this regard, it has been good to see positive change over the past two years, but there is still a long way to go.
