Women in Technology

Wyndham Grand Levent, Istanbul, March 4, 2020

Overview

In this session, IDC's new research on Women in Technology will be the main focus. The research delivers access to the latest industry data exposing the business opportunity for organizations to increase participation of women in technology. IDC's analysis of these trends will help diversity and inclusion officers better understand the drivers and success criteria for recruiting and retaining women in both technology roles and at technology companies.

The main focus areas are:

  • How are changes in corporate culture impacting the participation of women in technology?
  • What are the major drivers ad inhibitors for attracting female employees in technology firms?
  • Which tech companies are leading in terms of women's initiatives and what is the average level of investment in 2018?
  • What is the impact of churn on corporate revenues and profits? What role can men play in improving the participation of women in technology jobs and companies?
  • How can we gain a better understanding of challenges and obstacles faced by women in the tech industry and develop strategies to foster change?
