Women in IT scorecard - The IT profession by numbers

Women in IT scorecard - The IT profession by numbers

by Policyhubadmin

A definitive evidence base for data and commentary on women in IT employment and education.

BCS, e-skills UK and Intellect, with support from BERR, have worked in partnership to produce a ‘Women in IT scorecard.’

The report starts with an analysis of the low female representation levels in the IT workforce and then follows this issue back to the apparent reluctance of females to take Computer Science / IT related subjects at Higher and Secondary Education levels.

The purpose of this document is to provide a robust evidence base for the facts behind the trends, to demonstrate differences in the participation rates between the genders and to present an analysis of these trends and the current situation to inform policy debate and future action by the partners and their communities.
