According to Adeva IT, as of 2018, women held only 25% of all the jobs in the tech industry, despite women making up almost half of the total workforce. What’s worse, this number is lower than the percentage of tech jobs held by women back in the 1980s.
Research from Entelo also shows there are around 19% of women in entry level and mid-level roles in the tech industry. At the senior level, however, women hold only 16% of positions. As you go even higher, this number drops even lower, with women holding just 10% of executive level positions.
The Women in GRC Forum will bring together the great and the good of Governance, Risk and Compliance for a day of learning, insight, guidance and debate. Focusing on the key areas of leadership, the role of HR in business and career progression, the Women in Governance, Risk and Compliance Forum will provide a platform to challenge the status quo for women in GRC and help lead the charge in changing these statistics.
With research from the PwC Women in Technology research study showing that only 27% of female respondents would consider a career in Technology, compared to 62% of males, and only 22% of respondents able to name a famous woman in the tech industry, there is a clear need for a platform to encourage and inspire the next generation of female leaders.
