Report for Equalitec and the Department of Trade and Industry ITEC Skills Team

I am delighted to welcome this new report by Equalitec and the Involvement and Participation Association showcasing women professionals who have applied their Information Technology, Electronics and Communications (ITEC) knowledge and skills in an exciting range of technology related jobs. The case studies demonstrate the diverse opportunities available for women with ITEC skills, from weather forecasting at the BBC to e-health and IT security.

The Government wants to see more women working in ITEC related jobs. ITEC is a key contributor to the UK’s productivity and competitiveness and it is vital that technology sectors harness the full potential of the workforce available. To meet the continuing growth in ITEC, we need to encourage more women to consider ITEC related careers, and promote the challenging and exciting opportunities offered in these fast moving technology sectors. Breaking down occupational segregation is key to the Government’s drive to close the pay gap between men and women. A range of measures, from improved education and careers advice through to supporting flexible working, are in the Government’s Action Plan which will implement the Women and Work Commission recommendations.
