Our Niche

Opening Issues We Face Today.

The technology industry has a tremendous impact on society and individuals. For the last several decades, women have been greatly under-represented among the teams and leaders bringing new technologies to market. This has led to biased design in new technologies, even though women are among half of the population.

According to National Center for Women & Information Technology, women make up 28% of the workforce in computing and mathematical occupations in the United States in 2020.

This number has remained relatively stagnant over the past decade, indicating that the tech industry still has work to do in terms of improving gender diversity and inclusion. It is worth noting that the percentage of women in leadership positions within tech is even lower, with women representing only 18% of executives in the industry.
