WomeninTechZA is an initiative that aims to help address the gender gap in the ICT sector. Only 23% of tech jobs are held by women in South Africa – out of 236 000 ICT (tech) roles, women occupy 56 000 of them. As a sector, we need to hire women to improve diversity in the workplace (and it’s been proven that higher diversity equals higher productivity and profit).

 

But we cannot find women with the required skills, and we cannot attract young women to the sector because when they look at conferences, in the media and inside technology companies, they mainly see men (who they can’t relate to), doing what they perceive to be ‘boring’ jobs.

 

In order to improve both one and two, WomeninTechZA aims to act as a showcase and provide a platform where technology companies can find women to hire, and to start changing the image of the tech sector by showing the world the diverse faces of ICT.
