Women in Technology

Helping to make technology a more diverse and inclusive working environment

#WomeninTech

Why aren’t there more women in technology?

Our mission is for women to be equal participants in creating and developing the new tech businesses, products and services that shape our world.

But this mission isn’t so simple. Women are underrepresented in our industry and part of our challenge is changing the perception of what a career in technology offers. We believe that increasing the number of women in tech will add essential diversity to our sector and help inspire the next generation.

How we’re inspiring women and girls to consider a career in technology

Explore some of the research and resources we have to support women and girls at key stages of their personal and professional lives, helping to create a pipeline of future tech talent. 

Students

The technology gender gap starts at school and persists through every stage of girls’ and women’s lives. According to our own research, school girls are being put off tech subjects and careers and only 3% of them say a career in technology is their first choice.
