Digital Women

It is generally accepted that as a nation we are struggling to keep pace with the need for digital skills. A recent National Audit Office report states that the ‘UK digital skills gap across all industries exacerbates the government’s situation, even before considering demands of transformation’. In this digital age of technology infiltrating every aspect of our lives, you would think we would have women distributed at all levels of IT. However, a recent Computer Weekly report revealed that the average percentage of women working in technology teams in the UK is 12 per cent – down from 15 per cent last year.
