Forum members share gender balance strategy in their organisations and within technology teams. They look at personal routes to career success, organisational culture, engaging the business and building innovative, effective teams.

Women in Technology : Career Top Tips 

A UK survey by Deloitte1 states that 37 percent of women in IT say that they have been passed over for promotion because of their gender.


Only 14% of CIOs in UK are women. The statistics are not great.


And yet many women technologists say they have never experienced any discrimination. More tellingly women prefer to be recognized for their skills and ideas than singled out for being women. So how do you get where you want to be?


Start with the list… of factors that are important to you.


Plan your career and get prepared for the future. A study run by the Guardian in 2013 showed that almost a third of women have no long-term career plans, compared with one fifth of men. Have you.


Be Flexible… Special projects, off-shore appointments or sideways steps can make your career
