Attracting and retaining women in tech going beyond the trend !

Women are underrepresented in the digital realm. Today, they represent only 28 to 30% of employees, all professions combined.

What happened in this professional sector, however dominated by women during its genesis? Would women no longer feel in their place or not?

Some disturbing findings:

1) higher education leading to digital technology is invested in by men;
2) recruitment advertisements are not, as a rule, thought and written for women;
3) tech teams don't think about the deep needs of women or diversity;
4) women do not feel heard.

Even if women communicate, it seems that we do not listen to them.

And what are the results? Migration to corollary professions, brown-out, disembodiment in the team, resignations, creation of FemTech.

On a diverse spectrum, they lead the creation of safe places as a room of community expression.

So, if you want to promote diversity beyond the trend, and you have understood that the helping women in tech is a breach in solving the issue of diversity and inclusion, take part in my talk!
