Brazilian women in IT negatively impacted by remote working
Brazilian women working in the technology field are divided over the benefits of remote working arrangements during the pandemic, but most female professionals are faced with significant additional strain when operating in the domestic environment in the Covid-19 pandemic, a new study has found.
According to a study carried out by Arlington Research on behalf of cybersecurity firm Kaspersky which has surveyed 13,000 women and men in the IT sector globally, nearly half of the Brazilian female tech professionals (48%) surveyed believe that working from home has been helpful in terms of fostering gender equality in the workplace.
The study has also found that 42,6% of the female IT professionals polled prefer to work from home rather than the office. Moreover, 45% believe the remote working arrangement also provides more autonomy at work.
