International Womens Day 2020 - The Women in Tech

This International Women’s Day, We Celebrate the Ladies of Mirus IT

The UK tech industry is suffering a gender gap. Despite the industry’s evolution few new roles and positions are becoming occupied by women.

With only one in six specialists being female, Mirus is celebrating International Women’s Day (#IWD2020) #EachForEqual by recognising the women of Mirus and the tech industry.

Up until recently, the statistics surrounding women’s roles in the tech industry haven’t been encouraging:

- Only 27% of female students we surveyed say they would consider a career in technology, compared to 61% of males, and only 3% say it is their first choice. - pwc.co.uk #womenintech

- 3% of females say a career in technology is their first choice. - pwc.co.uk #womenintech

 But in the Mirus office alone, we’re noticing something of an upward trend.

The MTeam office still paints a rather typical picture; you’ll instantly notice how many more men occupy our desks than women. Yet the women of the Mirus office fill a diverse range of departments and, most recently, are starting to occupy the technical roles – not an area that sees much female representation.

As of January 2020, 20% of the 108 Mirus employees are women, and this percentage is increasing every year. With only 25% of all tech industry jobs being fulfilled by women in 2018, we’re hoping we can match, or even exceed that number in the near future.

Until then, we thought we thought we’d make a week of International Women’s Day. Every day, we’ll be catching up with a different female member of the MTeam to discover why they joined the industry, the difficulties they experienced – if any! – and whether their gender has made a difference to their industry experience.

Keep an eye on our blog over the week as we recognise the women of Mirus and champion the rise of the Mirus women in this vibrant industry!
