Women Choose Tech

We all know that women are under-represented in the technology sector directly or in ICT roles in other industries. Increasing participation of women in technology roles will guarantee an adequate pool of talent, whilst fostering innovation and greater connection with female consumers and the best ways to communicate with them.

‘Women Choose Tech’ was set up by FIT in 2021 to attain 33% female participation in tech apprenticeships by 2022, one positive step to help contribute to an improved gender balance in the ICT specialist workforce.
