She Goes Tech

Women in IT

Diversity ignites innovation. When women develop digital skills, they are empowered to become architects of their own future. Furthermore – empowering women is essential for achieving sustainable development in all spheres of life. There is no reason why one should think women are not made to be great at STEM subjects. From a young age the society encourages girls to pay more attention to social skills and empathy while boys are given a leg up to engage in activities that helps the development of their technical skills. Because of this, women are later underrepresented both in studying and working in the ICT. To encourage people to look towards the technology field, it is important to enhance the skills of beginner programmers and encourage a sense of companionship among women. With IT skills, women will be able to either develop their current careers or start a brand-new career in the IT industry. As an example, an economist or a physics professional with coding skills will have better opportunities than one without.
