How to support the progression of women in tech in in a post covid world
Xena sits down with Dipti Dhawan to explore the impact of covid-19 on the progression of women in tech.
The dreaded – C – word. That is, Covid-19. We all know covid has changed the way the world works forever. Some for the better, some for the worst. The one thing we can all agree on is the fact that Covid has put us through the most challenging time of our lives. As a business that’s committed to the advancement of girls and women in technology, what we really want to know is, how has covid impacted the progression of women in tech?
As an industry that struggles to attract and retain women already, we want to know what the harsh realities of being a woman in tech during the pandemic have been like. Guess what? The answer to that question is, bad.
We met with Dipti Dhawan, VP of Engineering at Omnius to understand just how tough the past 18 months have been on women in tech. We also put together a step-by-step guide on how organisations can overcome the impact of covid, and make women a priority in tech.
Our downloadable guide contains insights into the consequences of Covid, with action-oriented steps on how employers can support the progression of women, and the power of communities in a “new normal” world.
