Why Women in Tech
Digital is largely about tech and data. Those proficient in tech and data are poised to play leadership roles in shaping our world
Women are acutely under-represented in the fields of tech and data, despite global conversations on gender diversity in the workforce
The world needs more tech and data talent and women can fill this gap and drive sustainable careers and achieve financial independence
Decades of research suggests that diversity leads to enhanced innovation and problem solving and more women in tech implies better solutions to global problems
