Empowering Women in Tech: Remote Tech & UP School Collaboration
We've Partnered with UP School to Empower Women in Tech!
At Remote Tech, our unwavering commitment is to catalyze positive change within the tech industry by cultivating a culture of inclusivity and equal opportunity.
We are dedicated to amplifying the value of the tech sector by offering enriched and diverse opportunities for talent and overcoming barriers related to gender, ethnicity, and geographical location.
That's why we not only serve as a hub for talent to discover remote working opportunities but also function as a community where developers can expand their horizons, access educational resources, and advance their careers according to their aspirations.
With these principles in mind, we proudly collaborate with UP School to assist its graduates in connecting with the careers they envision. Let's draw inspiration from UP School's approach to empowering female tech talent. Later, we'll delve deeper into the Remote Tech ecosystem.
The Tech Industry Needs More Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion
Technology stands as one of the most dynamic and influential sectors globally, offering boundless opportunities for innovation, creativity, and impact. Nevertheless, it continues to fall short of the desired levels of equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI).
Equality, diversity, and inclusion are not merely ethical and moral imperatives; they also function as strategic and competitive advantages for organizations. These values contribute to heightened creativity, innovation, problem-solving, customer satisfaction, and employee engagement.
Moreover, they play a pivotal role in the acquisition and retention of talent, a critical factor in the tech industry, which contends with a skills shortage and high turnover rates.
Despite the potential advantages associated with these values, the tech industry has yet to realize them fully. Research indicates a concerning decline in the ratio of women to men in tech roles over the past 35 years, with half of women exiting the tech sector by the age of 35.
The World Economic Forum’s Gender Gap Report predicts a daunting 135.6 years to close the gender gap. Additionally, only 26% of jobs in computer-related sectors are held by women, and a mere 27.1% of tech managers and leaders are female.
Women aren't the sole underrepresented group in tech; Black, Latinx, and Indigenous people also encounter barriers to career advancement, including discrimination, bias, and a lack of mentorship and sponsorship.
To unlock the full potential of technology, urgent and concrete steps are needed to create a culture of inclusion, where everyone feels valued, respected, and empowered to contribute and collaborate.
The tech industry possesses the potential and the responsibility to lead in EDI. Embracing these values as a business imperative will not only enable us to benefit from diverse perspectives and experiences within the workforce but also create a positive impact on society and the world.
