'The research was a wake-up call': why it's vital to improve diversity in tech
As the digital revolution transforms our lives, the tech industry is on a drive to improve the diversity of its workforce after research found just 3% of females say a career in technology is their first choice
Technology is among Britain’s most male-dominated sectors. Less than one in five tech workers are female, compared with 49% across the whole UK economy, according to Tech Nation. The ratio gets even worse in senior roles, where just 5% of leadership positions go to women, according to research by professional services network PwC (pdf).
