Today is #InternationalWomensDay
According to the website Women in Tech the number of working women in technology is significantly lower than most other UK work sectors, with just 17% of those working in the UK technology sector reported as being female.
But the UK technology sector is exploding, creating hundreds of new exciting and innovative roles every week, and having a diverse team is always beneficial to any company. It is crucial to have a balanced workforce when it comes to sharing ideas, leadership and creativity for new projects. So we want to encourage more women to consider tech as their career path.
