Women in Technology
The proportion of women in IT currently stands at just 18% - woefully low considering the scale of the industry and the career potential we know it affords.
There is increasing ‘noise’ in the market about the rise of female executives, and we are seeing an increase in female decision makers in our customer base and in the market as a whole.
Fujitsu’s Women in Technology programme started in June 2013 with a view to bringing together female executives from across the Fujitsu customer and target base to explore the challenge of attracting females to the ICT profession – and nurturing and
retaining their talent.
At Fujitsu we believe in the power of difference; in the UK & Ireland we have three female Board executives, including a female CEO. It is our ambition to continue to increase the percentage of women in our organisation through focused recruitment, supportive policies and a clear career structure that supports progression.
- Fujitsu is immensely proud to sponsor the FDM everywoman in technology Awards and to be associated with the International Leader of the Year Award. Our global vision is to harness the power of technology innovation to create a safer, more prosperous and sustainable world.
- Fujitsu will also be sponsoring the Information Age Women in IT awards, now in its second year, which recognises the outstanding innovation achieved by women in the industry.
We hear from women at different stages in their technology careers, who tell us how they have shaped a role in the industry – from Apprentices, to Graduates and CEOs.
18th October 2016 - The role of Women in Technology in the workplace of the future
At our latest women in technology event we discussed the changing workplace. Many organisations have been busy focusing on implementing the technologies to make it possible for us to work flexibly, virtually and collaboratively remotely, but are they seeing success? Many have the tools to work remotely, but don’t necessarily have the culture.
We questioned; if there were more women in senior roles, would there be more emphasis on culture, and acceptance of the benefits of flexibility?
