Technology Ireland DIGITAL Skillnet are very proud to sponsor the #WomenInTech Company Initiative of the Year and looking forward to learning how companies are making sustainable steps to attract, retain and develop women across its workforce.

#WomenInTech Initiative

 

The Women in Technology - Company Award will recognise a company which has demonstrated a strong commitment to attracting, retaining and developing women across its workforce.

Women are under-represented in the technology sector with only 19% of women employed in technology companies or in ICT roles in other industries. However a strong representation of women is needed to increase the participation of women in senior roles and on boards, to ensure an adequate pool of talent, to foster innovation and to connect with female consumers who make the majority of buying decisions. Increasing the number of women in technology has the potential to boost company performance and foster more inclusive workplaces.
