About the Seminar:

According to the National Institute for Women & Technology, as at 2017, “women held 57% of all professional occupations, yet they held only 25% of all computing occupations. And the numbers are even lower when considering women of color; for example, Latinas, Black & African women hold only 1% and 3% of these jobs, respectively.

Furthermore, even fewer women are found in software development, technology leadership, or the other kinds of key roles that have a significant influence on future innovation. Consider that 88% of all information technology patents (from 1980–2010) are invented by male-only invention teams while only 2% are invented by female-only invention teams.

This seminar organised in partnership with EMPRETEC Guyana aims to address the issue of lack of women in technology in Guyana; particularly providing an actionable framework for entrepreneurship pathways within IT.
