Why are there so few women in IT in the UK? The Women in IT scorecard from e-skills UK offers some answers
Females consistently achieve higher grades than males in IT-related subjects, but they fill just 17% of IT & Telecoms professional occupations. The overall UK workforce is 45% female. Find out about some of the issues behind gender inequality in IT with the e-skills UK Women in IT Scorecard report.
What the Women in IT Scorecard includes:
- an analysis of the low number of women working in IT
- an analysis of trends in women studying Computer Science and IT-related courses in education
- an overview of the pay differences between men and women in IT occupations
- international comparisons
