There are several organizations currently supporting women in the technology sector, yet females only make up about 20% of the workforce and that number is actually declining. The number is even smaller when it comes to women in top executive positions in IT.
“WiT” is going to add more fuel to support and encourage more females to enter the IT space!
It is obvious that IT industry needs more diversification and therefore a lot more women must get into tech. The big question is how? Why have so many tried to do something and yet we are stalled and in a decline?
