Keeping Gender on the Agenda – Build Back Better
During these uncertain times, tech has become an enabler for many companies and communities. Yet despite decades of progress towards workplace equality, women remain woefully underrepresented in the UK’s technology workforce. Today fewer than 20% of IT roles are filled by women and only 5% of leadership positions. More needs to be done to encourage the female tech leaders of tomorrow. There has never been such an important time for more women to be involved in technology, with advertised roles in the digital tech sector growing 36% since June, and the government seeing digital skills set to be the driving force in the economy. Women are not only needed in tech to increase innovation, but they are also needed to increase revenue. Many studies have shown that gender-diverse companies produce a better profit than those who do not. It is also crucial that the people creating our technology solutions are representative of the population.
This is why the Midlands Women in Tech Awards 2021 are so important as a way of celebrating and promoting the female talent we have in our region and providing the role models for the future.
