" That's according to a new report, but a general lack of skills, but it also has a large deficit in women. Technology has been really hard on diversity, and the need to work for gender equality, " says Jennifer Woods, one of them, as it was five years ago, the organization Girls in the coding.
the Organization, leading training courses in programming for women, and it is because of the investigation, which has now been released.
In the survey were asked about 700 experts of their experiences in the workplace.
to earn less than their male colleagues in a similar position.
in Every state that they and their skills are more often challenged than that of male co-workers.
One-third believe that promotions are not based on the merits of the work.
the study ”the Voices of women and non-binary in IT,” I hope the organization is a Girls coding, to contribute to an awakening in the industry.
to gain a larger share of women in the it sector, than the current level of 28 per cent.
" the company has realized that not only are more women, they need it, but in general the diversity in order to remain innovative. Then it becomes all the more important to treat everyone equally, " says Jennifer Woods, speaking of the significant findings of the report.

the Discontent of the women in the male-dominated field of technology allows the otherwise much dissatisfaction as to be, in the other hand, in the other sectors as well.
the Men, perhaps, are better able to help themselves. Might be better at the negotiating table. Women find it harder to believe in their own abilities in a male-dominated field. Also, if you feel that you will be met by a ”little old lady-do attitude,” or challenged on the job – that is, half of the people we have asked have been no time – go from the start at a disadvantage when you are going to make the case for a higher salary, describe Hanna Pettersson.
She would like to see more transparency lönestrategier.
there is a shortage of approximately one million computer programmers in the EU, and that the shortage will remain unless more and more women are choosing this profession.
While the Girls are coding the other hand, has been talking about technology that is fun and creative, we've got thousands and thousands of women who would like to learn the technique.
" the skills gap is in some ways linked to the lack of diversity. If you can only attract a certain type of person will be the group to recruit from is smaller. The sector has tremendous potential of more and more audiences are attracted to, " says Hanna Pettersson.
One example is in advertisements.
as to what is being said in the jobbannonserna are what women are least attracted to. There is a particular way of talking about the technology – the super advanced and geeky, and with the titles on the right and the left, as it discourages women to apply for jobs, "says Hanna Pettersson.
" When we have a Girls coding, in contrast, has been talking about technology that is fun and creative, we've got thousands and thousands of women who would like to learn the technique.
She feels it is important that the companies in the industry to examine itself and do something about it. There are several checklists and tools, the report of which the company directly are encouraged to make use of. Most of the companies do not believe that this is true for everybody, but they are, according to Hanna Pettersson.
" So, stop guessing. And to ask, instead, questions, anonymous, internally and see what the responses are. Was transparent about the answers, and do something about it.

One of the last publishers, is related to the perception of hiring people with little experience.
" Technology is changing all the time and anywhere, companies will dare to invest in new people – the kind of people who don't look like the one who is doing the interview, or that of the other members of the team to this day. Hire them, treat them with respect, and the courage, then, to make it possible for them, " says Hanna Pettersson.<
