Committing to a more equal tech sector
It’s nothing new, Tech lacks women. The numbers speak for themselves: women represent only 16% of Tech employees and 20% of start-up founders worldwide.
There’s a pretty clear gender gap across the Tech industry in Spain. According to Opinium, DigitalES & UNESCO, only 30% of ICT jobs in Spain are held by women, and 63% of Spanish women don't think tech jobs are for them. Furthermore, only 35% of women are enrolled in STEM careers, and bringing more women into the tech sector could be worth up to 26 billion euros per year to the EU's GDP as a whole.
FemTech Movement, boosted by Ironhack, aims to fight this breach, and so do I.
We are convinced that by depriving itself of female talent, the Tech sector is missing out on major technological innovations and we want to do our part.
How? We want to make a difference by inspiring more women to join Tech jobs.
As members of The FemTech Movement, we agreed to uphold our principles and values:
