In this episode, experts recently inducted into Kyndryl’s Distinguished Technical Program discuss gender representation, equality, and equity in the tech industry. Hear their personal perspectives about what makes an impact and where the tech and business worlds still have room to grow.
Despite tremendous strides in representation of women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), a significant gender gap still persists in higher education and the workforce. Although there is a global shortage of skills in most of the technological fields driving the Fourth Industrial Revolution, women still only account for 28% of engineering graduates and 40% of graduates in computer science and informatics. In cutting-edge fields such as artificial intelligence, just one in five professionals is a woman.
