Women in tech are under-represented. Two thirds of the workforce in global tech firms are men yet women comprise nearly half of the world’s workforce. Even more worrying is that companies are struggling to retain women in tech. Despite the work being intellectually stimulating, women are dropping out of their tech jobs at a 45% higher rate than men. Lack of career advancement and mentoring support have been reported as some of the top reasons for this.
A mentoring programme to boost women’s careers can transform company culture and keep women in the industry, delivering significant economic and social benefits. This webinar discusses the value of mentoring women and what actions companies and women can take.
