The BCS reports that:
‘Latest figures from the 2015 Women in IT Scorecard research, published today by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT and the Tech Partnership, show that just one in ten IT Directors are women. The Scorecard also reveals that only 17% of the 1.18m IT specialists working in the UK in 2014 are women. This compares with a figure of 47% for the workforce as a whole.’

Gillian Arnold, Chair of BCSWomen says: “Female representation in the IT professions has changed little in the past ten years despite significant growth in the number of women working in IT roles (up 19% between 2004 and 2014). This is just not sustainable if the UK is going to remain competitive in this field and fill its looming skills gap. Employers are missing out on 50% of the talent available and we need to take action to address this as a profession and as a nation.”
