Women in Tech: A Roundtable Discussion on Strategies for Diversity w/ Roisin Parkes
When you think of the tech industry, who first comes to mind? Elon Musk? Mark Zuckerberg?
Or is it one of the incredible women leading causes such as Project F?
Balancing the Ratio of Women to Men in the Tech Industry
Historically, women have been less likely to go into the tech industry than men; this has led to an imbalance ratio in the workplace, leaving the few women in the industry isolated. Project F aims to change that by bringing strategies and audits to companies—bringing to light some roadblocks that prevent a business from integrating more women.
