WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY REPORT

We have been surveying women who either currently work in the technology industry or used to. Obtaining real life insights about their experiences whether bad or good. We are hoping this leads to positive change and further inclusivity in the world of IT. With over 100 detailed responses, we believe this report paints a picture of good and bad from their perspective.

From this, we will continue to work with employers and candidates alike to promote gender equality in the workforce.
