Women in tech need greater support says MYOB
In the latest MYOB Women in Tech report – released at a special Techweek event on Thursday 23 May – the company said there is still work to be done among the local tech sector if New Zealand is to live up to its reputation as a society that recognises, promotes and enjoys the full benefits of equal representation of women.
According to report, nearly half of the tech industry’s female leaders have personally experienced gender bias in the workplace. The report also says just 25% of local technology businesses have equal representation in their leadership teams (41% to 60% of their leaders are female), while only one in ten tech businesses work to actively address discrimination. Less than half pay their female employees the same as men in the same role.
