A SOCIETAL CHANGE THAT WE ARE ACTIVELY HELPING TO SHAPE
The numbers of women developers, administrators, etc. in non-tech companies has been growing rapidly in recent years. There is currently a shortage of 24,000 IT experts in Austria. Every day new jobs are advertised that are difficult to fill. The job world is undergoing a digital transformation from which female workers in particular can benefit.
Our #TheNewITGirls programme focuses on women from varying backgrounds, companies and professional fields. It is true to say that hard skills are often needed in IT. Analytical thinking, complex problem-solving skills, active learning, a critical mind, bags of creativity, resilience, and much more are required.
Many women are well equipped for this. They are the #thenewITgirls.
