Solving for the Lack of Women in Technology

According to a recent article published on Recode.net, by 2020, there will be 1.4 million jobs available in computing-related fields. U.S. graduates are on track to fill 29 percent of those jobs, with women filling just 3 percent.

The article is authored by Rachel Weiss, the VP of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at L’Oréal USA, and chair of the five-year-old Women in Digital program she created.

Ms Weiss askswhat can we do differently to raise awareness and find solutions for a problem that is not being solved?”

As part of our founding principles, Overture Partners, a women-owned enterprise, strives to continually foster and advance gender equality in our firm, partnerships, and business relationships.

Ms. Weiss suggests the industry starts addressing the gender diversity issue with four guiding principles:

    • Diversity equals innovation.
    • Encouragement at every stage of a woman’s career is key.
    • Corporate involvement is critical.
    • Inspire the next generation.
