Meet the firms championing diversity in the tech sector | Resourcing
It’s no secret that the technology sector is lagging when it comes to gender diversity. Just 17% of tech workers in the UK are female, just 21% of the STEM workforce is made up of women, and, sadly just 13% of females have a desire to work in technology. Considering that there is a lack of female role models, combined with some of the misogynistic attitudes coming out of Silicon Valley and it’s easy to see why.
However, the Tech Talent Charter hopes to change that. They’re helping organisations to bridge the gender gap whilst curtailing the skills shortage in the industry. CEO, Debbie Forster,explains: “We have to stop talking about diversity or waiting for someone else to fix it and start implementing positive action to ensure that women play a significant role in growing the UK tech industry.”
