The Digital Recruitment Company is proud to present it’s Women in Digital series. This series aims to explore how women’s roles in the Digital Industry have evolved and to investigate if age-old gender bias still exists in the Digital Industry.
In 1985 35% of computer science students were female. By 2015 this figure dropped to just 17%. In the 1980s the IT sector was a new, refreshing industry opening doors to both males and females. However, has Computer Science since developed a male dominant stereotype? Initiatives developed from the likes of Google, Facebook and LinkedIn are looking to boost the number of women in the industry through various internal training regimes.
At the Digital Recruitment Company we want to share the stories of females who have challenged the stereotype and built a successful career within the Digital sector. In 2016 we’re looking to increase the representation of females in the industry by sharing the stories and advice of influential females already within the sector, and reaching out to those looking to pursue a role within digital.
