Studies have been carried out and although most show that there is an increase in women entering the sector, progress has been shown to be slow.
At Henderson Scott, we wanted to find out more and as such, decided to carry out our own research. The data retrieved provided some very valuable, albeit surprising, talking points.
One stat showed that, only 21% of the average tech team comprised of women and only 7 respondents of the study reported that figure to be 50% or more. Following this, when these companies were asked what steps were in motion to try and equalise these numbers, 10% said they had targets, 26% did not provide an answer at all and 64% stated that their company had no such targets in place.
