Cyferd’s “Closing the Gap” program is designed to bring together female-identifying developers with employment opportunities within our team.
Discover Cyferd’s commitment to inclusivity in technology.
According to TechJury and TechRadius, most men working in tech “consider their workplaces diverse when it comes to gender”, while only 47% of women agree.
Sound familiar? At Cyferd, we know the struggle of getting underrepresented groups in the door in the technology industry.
Here at Cyferd, our team is just over 35% female-identifying, compared to the average of just 19% (Source: Women in Tech).
Moreover, 72% of women in tech are regularly outnumbered by men in business meetings by at least a 2:1 ratio, with 26% of women report being outnumbered by 5:1 or more (Source: TechJury)
So, what gives? Cyferd is committed to helping underrepresented groups expedite their journeys to successful careers in technology.
Cyferd has launched a cutting-edge nationwide program to “Close the gender gap” in the technology industry nationwide.
We believe that gender diversity begins at the source: that’s why the Closing the Gap program is a coalition of initiatives run by Cyferd in partnership with organizations, enterprises, and educational institutions.
Our program leads opportunities to increase the number of women in the technology industry through competitions, internships, and graduate employment and networking pipelines.
Currently, Cyferd is partnering with De Montfort University, Leicester, to launch an all-girls Competition of Innovation. Students of DMU will compete to win top prizes and gain meaningful connections and experience in the technology industry.
Anne-Louise Bee, COO of Cyferd and head of the Closing the Gap program, is delighted to be spearheading the scheme to bring more women into valuable technology roles.
“The issues we need to tackle start at the very beginning,” she notes. “We’re committed to making underrepresented groups feel welcomed and encouraged.”
