Roundtable 8

Women in technology

Written by UK Tech Cluster Group

According to PWC UK, just 5 per cent of leadership positions in the technology sector are held by women. A diverse workforce makes better businesses; so how do we work to support female talent and enable women to lead across all sectors? And how can technology help bridge the diversity gap globally?

In our eighth roundtable, the group discuss the underrepresentation of women in technology and how we can overcome current barriers to take productive steps forward.

If you look at the data around women in STEM, the progress we've been making on getting young women into STEM is 0.25% each year, for the past four years. So in four years, we've increased the number of women in STEM by 1%.
