Empowering women of colour in the tech industry

In recent years, there has been a significant push for greater gender diversity within the tech industry. More women than ever are working in IT roles across the UK (326,000 in total) and now make up a record 20% share of the specialist IT workforce (BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT) and this number continues to grow.

Despite the strategies implemented to address gender imbalance, it is no secret that the tech industry still remains predominantly white and male. It appears that being a woman, especially a woman of colour, remains a rarity in the industry. According to data collected from BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, ‘black women are still heavily under-represented in IT and, by comparison, across other occupations their level of representation is 2.5 times higher’. As stated by Julia Adamson, Director for Education at BCS, “there is still some way to go towards true equality in our field; Black women make up less than one percent of IT specialists”.
