"Today’s tech business has a responsibility to make a change in the under representation of women in the tech sector." - Christopher Thomas, Founder/Chairman, VirtMe Technology, Inc
AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) March 15, 2021
According to a report by The World Bank, women make up less than 40% of the total global workforce. Of course, this number differs when you zoom in to specific countries or regions.
While the rate has improved over the years, it’s still less than men and women tend to be employed in lower paying jobs.
What About the Women in Tech Workforce?
- Only 17% of Tech specialists are women.
- Only 34% of STEM graduates are women.
- Women in the Tech sector earn 19% less than men.
- In the Atomico report on gender composition by job title for Executive-level positions, the study found just 1 female Chief Technology Officer out of a sample of 175.
- 93% of the capital invested in tech companies went to all-male founding teams.
VirtMe Technology was built with women inclusion from its idea phase, with Ly Averette named as a Co-Founder.
Christopher Thomas, Founder and Chairman of VirtMe Technology states, “Today’s tech business has a responsibility to make a change in the under representation of women in the tech sector. We could initially blame it on unawareness; but now there are too many reports that support the fact of the lack of women (and blacks) on a global scale within the technology industry… we have to stay conscious and intentional to improve it.”
From VirtMe Technology’s Co-Founder, to Legal Counsel and Intellectual Property Attorney … all are women. The company is committed to ensuring that women will continue to be a major part of its structure for the life of the business.
