On March, as part of International Women's Day 2017, a computer engineer, a futurist and a digital project manager, all females, have discussed the current position of women in the digital sector. Today, women still comprise a low proportion of the digital sector employees.
What can be done? During the first roundtable, organized by the Diversity and Inclusion Team, one of the main axes of improvement highlighted was to heighten awareness of the coming generations of women, who cannot miss the digital revolution. All the more so as today, female students only make up 8 to 10 % of Digital schools’ students, according to the State Secretariat of Digital and Innovation, and 28,4% of all the students in Engineer schools, according to the Conference of the Directors of French Engineering Schools.
Then, a second round-table saw three women, one trader, one site supervisor and one fund manager and a male social worker discussing the choice of practicing a job that wouldn’t be associated with their gender.
This event provided an opportunity to overturn gender stereotypes at work. Its participants all agreed: women should place greater confidence in their abilities and lean in their working life!
