Farnell extends Women in Engineereing survey deadline
Farnell has extended its Women in Engineering survey giving respondents until May 15 to take part. Anyone wishing to take part in the survey can do so here.
The survey is addressing the question - There’s a gender gap in tech, but why?
Farnell is actively encouraging girls to study science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) to close the gender gap in the tech industry.
“I’ve faced my share of challenges over my career working in technology and am looking forward to hearing from my peers on what their experiences have been like,” said Dianne Kibbey (pictured), Global Head of Community and Social Media for element14.“We’re hoping to hear from people working in this industry – whatever their age, race, or gender, so that we can gain insights around what is working well for women and what could be improved.”
But what about women who are joining the industry – how welcoming is the workplace for them? And what about women who are already established in tech – are we as an industry providing them enough opportunities to develop and progress?
Why aren’t more women choosing STEM careers? Are there barriers blocking women from equality? Have you witnessed or experienced examples of gender inequality at work? What are some of the things you’d like to see, or recommendations you would make?
How can we help improve gender equality in tech?
Farnell wants to be a part of the solution, so it is asking for your input to enable us to collect the evidence which will help turn ideas into action.
