In celebration of International Women’s Day, unlock the key reasons why women should consider a career in tech and discover how Sparta Global, and the wider industry is here to help.
Now is a hugely exciting time to be working in tech. And for women looking to break into the space in particular, employers are more progressive, organisations more inclusive, and diverse perspectives are being encouraged in the workplace more than ever.
Technology needs women; their fresh thinking, diverse perspectives, and passions. The industry simply cannot rise to meet the needs of society without diverse teams building its products and services. It has been proven that women in leadership roles have an innate ability to make powerful and progressive business impact - from driving innovation and new business opportunities, to spearheading inclusion and ESG initiatives. Women display natural humility, self-awareness, self-control, and emotional intelligence.
Leading by example
International Women’s Day is a chance for UK tech to showcase the women role models already leading the way, and to empower those thinking about tech, to jump in with two feet. We encourage you to scroll down and hear from some of the incredible women below who are training with us as part of our inaugural Athena Academy cohort.
We set up Sparta’s Athena Academy to give women an alternative route to enter the tech industry – if you want to train with other women and feel most comfortable learning from a woman who has worked in tech, then this is a safe space for you to get confident and get started. You can find out more here.
