Read on to find out how our partnership with everywoman is continually encouraging females to pursue a career in IT.
The IT industry has a huge lack of women on its workforce. Almost half of the UK labour force (ONS) is female but only 17% of IT professionals (e-skills) are women and the industry is losing out on a huge pool of talent. Women in Technology research has shown that men believe they would have a more creative, innovative and fun environment, as well as better departmental communication, if there were more women in their teams.
The FDM and everywoman partnership actively encourages more females to pursue a career in IT. FDM is the headline sponsor of the everywoman in Technology Awards, allowing both organisations to promote, celebrate and commend the achievements of women in the UK.
FDM and everywoman are leading the way in a bid to advance and support women in IT. We work on a series of programmes to inspire and encourage women in technology, from showcasing their successes and creating role models for the future, to supporting their personal development. The statistics speak for themselves and FDM has already started to attract more women into the business each month.
