WITI (Women in Technology International), IDC and Randstad Technologies partnered to better understand the impact of gender in the workplace, specifically in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.
The survey was conducted in October 2018 and completed by 1,100 respondents, who are members of the WITI organization. Participants were asked about early life decisions and influences, mentoring and support, career choices and experiences, and opinions on the underrepresentation of women in STEM.
In 2011, the US Department of Commerce reported that growth in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) jobs was three times as fast as growth in non-STEM jobs from 2000-2010. In turn, organizations are challenged by the disproportion of supply and demand.
Couple this with the growing spotlight on the underrepresentation of women in STEM, and we have a perfect storm resulting in a need to get more women in STEM, understand women’s choices better and support change to make it happen. Women in Technology International (WITI), IDC and Randstad Technologies partnered to do just that.
