Gender diversity is vital to any workplace. Not just because it’s an admirable goal or initiative; it simply makes bottom-line business sense. Following are key points pertinent to gender diversity and its importance to any organization.
Most stakeholders today have limited to no knowledge about the makeup of corporate boards. They would be surprised to learn how little diversity of thought and experience exists in the corporate boardrooms and executive suites.
In many sectors/verticals of the business world the gender gap between men and women is closing in quickly. However, the technology industry, which is already male-dominated, has been showing a recent and steady decline regarding women who find and pursue degrees in what should be a growing pool of opportunity. Coding and technology know-how is becoming a necessary component to a well-rounded career and, without female perspectives, technological advances could be subpar or irrelevant.
Hiring more women in design, product, project management, community, and leadership positions in general creates a healthier workplace. A diverse workplace is proven to get better results, more accurately reflects your customer/client base, and ensures a wider range of experience. ****Moreover, the perspective that women bring to workplace is much different and helps to connect with larger and diverse clientele.
Women account for less than a quarter of the engineers at most tech companies. Technical positions are more likely to lead to senior roles at tech companies. The tech industry has always been a male dominated field and though there are more women in today’s workforce, less are choosing to join the sector now than 20 years ago. Not only this, but there remains a significant pay gap between men and women and many women report everyday sexism in the workplace, which is off putting for females looking to join the sector.
So the most laudable question is – Why the technology industry needs more women? Following are key points to address this question.
Following are few key reasons to fewer women in technology industry.
Changes don’t happen by themselves; they need to be initiated and inculcated as a part of an organization’s culture and behavioral aspect. The following points summarize the ways in which an organization can help reduce the gender bias/gap in its workforce.
