There’s no denying it. The tech industry is a male dominated field. Yes, small steps are being taken, but the fact is there’s still a significant gender gap, with stats showing that women make up less than one third of the global workforce in technology related fields.
The level of gender inequality varies across disciplines, with far fewer women employed in engineering and architecture roles. Look at software development in particular, and you’ll find that currently, around just 17% of developers worldwide are female.
At REVIEWS.io, we believe that initiatives like the Girls in Tech internship can help to create a more inclusive and diverse workforce. We’re committed to supporting gender diversity in the field and believe that by providing opportunities for young women to gain practical experience, we can help to inspire the next generation of women in tech.
