It is no secret that the IT industry employs fewer women than men. Does it matter? Of course! Numerous studies show that more gender or socio-demographic diversity within teams contributes to boosting innovation and better economic results for the companies.
In order to be able to contribute effectively to a change of the current situation in the IT industry and increase women’s participation in it, we have to get to know their current situation better.
What does women’s work in IT look like today? Who are the women who have decided to take this career path? What motivated their choice? What are their expectations towards employers? How do they find their way in teams that are often composed of more than 86% of men? How do they talk about themselves, and finally, how are they perceived by the media?
You will find the answers to these and other questions in the present study Women in IT.
I wish you pleasant reading!
