Women in Technology

According to the BCS’s Women in IT scorecard, just 17% of people working in the technology industry are women. Likewise, a report by Women in Technology which surveyed over 1,000 women working in the technology sector found “70% of women from both large organisations and SME’s alike reported a gender imbalance in their current workplace”.  Although significant steps have been undertaken to address the imbalance, it’s clear there is still continued work to be done.

Celebrating International Women's Day

To celebrate International Women’s Day, our very own Sherry Vaswani (Group CEO) caught up with Lesley Salmon (SVP & Global CIO) from Kellogg Company to discuss and share their personal stories and insights on Women in Tech. A wonderful listen with some ‘shocking’ statistics, encouraging signs and inspirational stories.
