There’s no downplaying the fact that the way people work and do business is changing. In recent years, companies have had to quickly adjust their tools and business methods to support the rapid shift to remote and hybrid work. Looking towards the future, it’s clear that hybrid work models will become the standard.
As more job openings become available to support the new world of work, organizations are presented with the opportunity to take big diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) strides within an industry that has persistent gender inequalities: technology.
- Only 25% of technology jobs were held by women in 2018, despite representing about half of the overall workforce.
- Women are also 4x more likely than men to see gender bias as an obstacle to promotion.
Recognizing that women are an underutilized resource in the workforce overall, companies need to act now and leverage the power of workforce education as an equalizer.
