What’s it like to be a woman in tech today? For one thing, it can be lonely. Women make up only 24 percent of the tech workforce at entry level, and occupy only 11 percent of executive positions in Silicon Valley. In addition to being on their own, women also face significant challenges: According to female tech pros recently surveyed by global technology association ISACA, wage inequality, workplace gender bias and a shortage of female role models are among the biggest barriers they’re experiencing today. What are some of the primary reasons women are so underrepresented in tech? In the same survey, 33 percent say it’s because tech leaders and role models are largely male, while 22 percent report that tech is perceived as a male-dominated field. Dice would like to change that. Register now for Dice’s sponsored webinar and join Perri Chase, CEO of Perri Chase Coaching and Consulting, as she takes an exclusive look at new Dice data on the state of the industry, including what women in tech are experiencing compared to their male colleagues. Chase spent the first half of her career helping global banks and hedge funds recruit the best talent from their competitiors. Most recently, she worked in tech as a founder of companies such as Unroll.me and Archively. During this webinar sponsored by Dice, Chase will share:
- Strategies that women in tech believe recruiters can use to promote more equality in the workplace (spoiler alert: gender-neutral job applications fall last on the list).
- Tweaks you can make to your EVP and recruitment strategy that can make a big difference when attracting and retaining women.
- Proven outreach and recruitment tactics that work with women in tech and will help you stand out.
