Women in ICT: Perspectives and perceptions

As technology rapidly evolves and drives huge shifts in business, the information and communications technology (ICT) industry needs to attract more young women, according to a recent report by professional services firm Deloitte. 

The report, Women in ICT - Perspectives and Perceptions, details how women comprise less than 20% of the Australian ICT workforce.

The lack of female representation at senior levels is even greater, with women occupying a tiny percentage of ICT leadership roles. Organisations and their leaders need to address the gender imbalance in the ICT industry if they are to recruit, retain and engage Australia’s high performing talent.

Essential skill sets include:

  • Broad business knowledge
  • An understanding of technology trends
  • Communication skills
  • Empowered leadership style
  • Strategic planning and long-term vision.
