⚡️ Addressing the Gender Gap in Technology: What Needs to be Done?

As technology continues to drive the world forward, it is important to take a look at the gender imbalance that exists within the technology industry. Despite a growing number of women in tech, there is still a huge gap between the genders when it comes to representation in the industry. This gender gap has a real impact on the development of technology and how it is used. It is essential that we take steps to address this gender imbalance in order to ensure that technology is used to its fullest potential. In this episode, we explore the reasons why we need to take action to address the gender imbalance in tech and how we can do so.
