We need more women in technology - TasCast Show Daily - Episode 28

7Jan

In today’s episode I talk about why I think there should be more women in technology roles. My thought started after talking to Ali King, a female data engineer and a public speaker who tries to raise awareness about women in tech.

As I looked more into it I realised that there are less women working in tech but also less women finding startup companies, involved in venture capital firms, getting computer science degree, etc.

I do believe that more women in startups and technology in general will benefit the sectors. My personal experience working with woman allows me to say with confidence that they bring many strong elements onto the table and they perceive the world in ways that male colleagues might not be able to do for some reason.
