The Tech She Can® Charter

What is The Tech She Can Charter?

The Tech She Can Charter is a commitment by organisations to work together to increase the number of women working in technology roles in the UK. It aims to tackle the root cause of the problem at a societal level by inspiring and educating young girls and women to get into tech careers and sharing best practice across the organisations involved.

Why this matters?

As a group we know this is an important problem to solve as technology is set to influence every aspect of our lives. We need to ensure that the people creating our technology solutions are representative of the population and that females have an equal opportunity to take part in the jobs of the future.

This ground-breaking cross-industry initiative follows a PwC research study which reveals that:Only 27% of females would consider a career in technology, compared to 62% of males

Only 3% of females say technology is their first choice

Only 16% of the females had technology suggested to them as a potential career, versus 33% of males
