THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY
Since the tech giants of the world began diversity reporting back in 2014, some things have changed…but not enough. Globally, there is a notorious lack of representation, across the tech industry, of women, black and minority ethnic professionals, workers with disabilities and those from the LGBTQ+ community.
Progression around gender equity has, arguably, taken larger leaps than other areas of inclusion; however, it remains that women make up only 25% of the workforce in some of the world’s Big Techs (Statista, 2020).
The Women in IT Summit & Awards initiative, presented by DiversityQ in association with Information Age, works alongside a community of industry champions to change the statistics.
The Women in IT Summit USA returned virtually as a two-part series on April 28 and October 13 2021. We were joined by a powerhouse panel of tech experts and D&I advocates who shared valuable recommendations on creating true diversity in IT.
The Women in IT Awards returned virtually on September 21, 2021. These unique awards continued to recognize and shine a light on the amazing individuals and organizations who are not only breaking digital boundaries but championing change for women in technology.
