Seriously, women in tech
Two-thirds of women working in technology say they are not taken seriously due to their gender. And over half of tech females responding to a global survey conducted by Ivanti say women need to have thick skins to work in the sector
Three-quarters of respondents believe the best way to encourage more women to work in tech would be to pay them the same as their male co-workers.
“Anecdotal feedback we received suggests that while there may be more women in technology than ever, they seem to get stuck in administrative roles and do not progress as quickly as their male counterparts,” says Ivanti.
“We also heard from women who feel that they could bring an alternative viewpoint or provide a different way of thinking to their male counterparts – an important business benefit.”
