Would you like to have a clear understanding of the accurate participation rates among women in education and employment in the IT sector?

"Women are under-represented among ICT specialists in all EU Member States; a striking contrast with total employment where the genders are broadly balanced. Figures show that in 2016, an overwhelming majority (83.3%) of ICT specialists employed in the EU were men. This was the case in every EU Member State."
