Women In Technology #internationalwomensday

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.

Advice to get started on your career in technology is available

Women in Tech has put together a series of fantastic blogs, articles and guides that can advise you on getting started in a career in technology.

They are all available at https://www.womenintech.co.uk/news-guides

Conversion rates with SaaS do not appear to be gender-dependent

Here at CircleLoop as a SaaS (software as a service) based product we see 30.2% of our visitors to our website over the year are female, and this has increased from 22.9% this time in April 2018.

Importantly we see no significant difference in the number of customers that convert to a paid customer between the genders, there is only a 0.7% difference in our conversion rate between male and female users.
