Despite the rapid growth of the IT and telecoms industry and the career opportunities it offers, gender diversity still poses a major challenge, with women making up less than 20 per cent of the IT workforce. This ebook seeks to highlight the issues and to encourage more girls and women to consider a career in IT by showcasing the lives and careers of female IT professionals, entrepreneurs and academics. Full of inspirational stories and useful career advice, its aim is not only to demonstrate the advantages of a career in IT to girls and women, but also to emphasise the proven benefits of gender diversity in the workplace.
