Our 5050tech work is about making sure that half of the UK’s tech workforce are women in ten years’ time.
Today, women occupy only 17 percent of tech specialist jobs. Fewer than 1 in 10 of these women are in leadership positions, and there is a significant gap in gender pay across the industry.
Research shows that high-tech companies led by women are more capital-efficient than the norm.
Moreover, products, services and ideas that are not founded on diverse thinking will never be as competitive as those created by gender-balanced teams.
We want to understand and rectify the low levels of women in the tech industry. If we do this, our society will not only be more equal - it will also be more competitive.
We’re backing women-run start-ups and finding ways of bringing women back into the workforce through training them for tech jobs.
We’re working closely with our partners through the Doteveryone Campus to make sure that our programmes are scalable.
Connecting early stage, internet-enabled start-ups with at least 1 woman co-founder with expert mentors and investors to support them in reaching their potential.
