Episode Description

The tech industry takes pride in changing the world of work, but it is further away from achieving gender equality than other industries. Looking at top companies, the leadership positions that women hold waver around 25 %. In school, girls get better grades than boys. So why do women not pursue technology at the university level, where technology has one of the highest gender disparities in course subjects? Is it because there is a lack of role models for women in the technology sector? As part of our Women in Technology series, we like to look at women who are role models in technology. In this episode, we not only speak to two women in technology but two women who are setting the strategy and vision for their company. Tech Strategy is one of the most demanding fields in technology, and the vision and creativity women are contributing is changing the future. Listen to these two women who tell us their story and how they think women can add to technological advance.
