In a world increasingly driven by technology, the shortage of skilled tech workers is becoming ever more acute. Employers are under mounting pressure to compete for the expertise they need as they strive to harness technology and keep up with the pace of change. In the wake of the pandemic, the social and economic value of gender balance has become increasingly evident. The capacity to nurture inclusivity and diversity and develop the female talent pool is critical for enhancing the workforce. Education is at the forefront of initiatives aimed at closing the gender gap and strengthening digital capabilities as forward-thinking organisations seek to boost productivity and performance.
What are the benefits of diversity and what are the barriers to a better gender balance in technology? In what ways are leaders rethinking their approach to support inclusivity and foster female talent? How is the education of women in tech making a difference? How can we ensure that women are offered positions in technology once they have the skills?
The Financial Times, in partnership with Huawei, was delighted to host this webinar for women in tech and leaders committed to driving transformation and improving the breadth and depth of workforce expertise. The discussion considered what it takes to diversify and educate tech professionals, with a focus on how to empower women in the industry, as well as the value and importance of inclusion in the digital era.
