Diversity in IT world - conferenceRead post
We were happy to talk about an important topic like gender diversity in IT world. According to a McKinsey report, companies with a more gender-diverse workforce perform better financially (15% more).
So let’s imagine, that we live in a world with 50/50 equality of men and women in the IT world. The results of cooperation in such a world are enormous. Starting from pushing the next generations forward by creating many more opportunities for future IT enthusiasts, creating huge financial returns in businesses to more inspiring communities. This world will change everything in our lives. It's a place where freedom, respect, creativity, cooperation are common values. This is the world that we all desire to live in, that will lead us to the next level of our lives. And it will influence everything starting from us, to companies, countries, societies.
For all these reasons, I was a speaker on the discussion panel because we at Lonsley want to be a part of this movement for change. And that's why I, as a representative, talked about it on the discussion panel about gender diversity and ways to create a path forward.
