It’s Time for Businesses to Foster a Skilled Girl Force: A View From a Technology Intern

It’s Time for Businesses to Foster a Skilled Girl Force: A View From a Technology Intern

first_imgThis year’s International Day of the Girl is all about creating a skilled Girl Force, drawing attention and investment for girls to gain skills, experience and employment. Consistently underrepresented fields for women are the science and technology fields. Women in STEM fields only make up 15 per cent of the workforce with research showing that factors such as implicit and explicit biases, lack of role models and quality mentoring all have an impact on the number of women applying for roles in STEM. The problem goes right back to schooling and the exposure girls are given to STEM subjects, resulting in fewer pursuing the careers.  The growth in the number of female graduates was just 3.1 per cent between 2015/2016 and 2016/2017, whereas the growth in male graduates was 9 per cent.Unfortunately, there is a self-perpetuating cycle whereby women are put off by a career in technology that is seen to be too male dominated an industry. The resulting impact is a lack of women applying and forging a career in a sector that has so much to offer. Just a staggeringly low 3 per cent of females say a career in technology is their first choice.Growing up in Dundee, Scotland, I was always aware of the impact and draw of working for technology companies – but just hadn’t considered it could be an option for someone who studied law. Our university is one of the best in the country for studying technology and Dundee is home to big named companies like Rockstar Games.  A huge number of my male friends went into IT jobs after studying computing, but not one of my female friends took the same path.  It wasn’t until a family member discussed their experience as a woman working within the technology industry that I started to consider the number of different roles open to me.It is vital that the technology industry address the gender imbalance and put practices in place to encourage women to develop their careers in technology. Equally important though is that encouragement is made throughout their career – regardless of the position they hold.During my time working at Dell in its legal department, I have had the opportunity to meet and talk to some of the great women that work for the company. One such person had been at the company for 24 years and was two weeks away from retirement when I joined. They had been instrumental in developing Dell’s Good Governance Policy, and helped me understand the various ways that organisations encourage women to stay in the business, through programs like mentorship schemes, dedicated STEM events, as well as the importance of these initiatives being driven from the very top of the organisation.Business leaders taking a role in the promotion of women in tech is incredibly important to understanding how a company treats its female employees. Michael Dell for instance is part of the Catalyst CEO Champions for Change, striving for gender equality and inclusion in the workplace.The company helps to support women outside the business in the field of technology with its DWEN (Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network) scheme, supporting and nurturing a community of female entrepreneurs by providing access to technology, networks and capital. Dell works with several Universities and Colleges across Glasgow to recruit female undergrads to support them in their transition from academia to the world of work within the tech sector. Working for a business like this that truly values its female staff is helping to slowly change the perception of women working in tech.The “returner” market of women coming back to work after having a baby is worth billions if companies can deliver on proper working practices for women. Businesses need to understand this and be able to assure women that their working practices won’t change if they take time out to have a family. It is estimated that three in five women return to work in lower-skilled or lower-paid roles than when they left and yet if businesses address the career break penalty, there is the possibility of making £4,000 in additional earnings. I got to experience this for myself when I saw a close family member coming back from maternity leave and she was afforded all the opportunities for career progression and training that she would have had if she hadn’t taken time out to start a family.For this year’s International Day of the Girl, I hope that women around the world will begin to look at STEM careers as an area where their skills and personalities are as appreciated and valued as men’s. I think anybody looking to get into a STEM field should look at how the company treats its employees, what the make-up of the board is like and the number of women in senior leadership positions. Getting the opportunity to speak with women at the company is invaluable to understanding the real culture to the business and deciding whether it’s a place you can work and thrive.Laurie Presswood is an intern at Dell Technologies, working in the corporate legal team.last_img read more

Black or latte? Central Java governor mulls opening coffee shop in Paris

Black or latte? Central Java governor mulls opening coffee shop in Paris

first_imgIndonesian Ambassador to France Armanatha Christiawan Nasir has offered Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo an opportunity to open a coffee shop in Paris as he said Parisians’ interest in coffee products from Central Java was high.“Coffee products from Central Java always attract French people, therefore I offer the Central Java governor the chance to open a coffee shop in Paris so [we] can tap into the potential,” he said during a visit to Governor Ganjar’s official residence in Semarang on Sunday evening, as quoted by Antara.Besides coffee products, he went on to say, the French are also familiar with the province’s popular tourist attraction the Borobudur temple. A sizable number of French came to Indonesia only to visit Borobudur, he added.“Borobudur has become one of the most popular destinations in France. Now French people are not only familiar with Bali but also Borobudur, and many of them go to the temple,” he said.The visits by French tourists to Central Java have great potential because every August is a month-long holiday in France, he said.During the month, the French usually travel to many places.  “At the moment, one of the most popular destinations is Borobudur temple. The Central Java administration has to make the best of the potential because French people usually stay a long time during their trips — between 10 and 20 days,” said Armanatha.The ambassador said his French friends, who had visited Borobudur, were in awe at the area’s various tourist attractions. Not only the great temple and interesting cuisine but also unique handicrafts by locals amazed French tourists.“Some of the French tourists even make their annual trip to Borobudur just to enjoy dishes in small stalls near the temple. They say the food is delicious and they crave it. There are also tourists who are amazed by the arts and culture,” he said.In response, Governor Ganjar took seriously the offer to open a coffee shop in Paris. He immediately asked his staff to measure the possibilities.“There are many Central Java products that are in high demand in France, but when [Armanatha] mentioned the popularity of Central Java coffee, I became interested in opening a shop there. We have to put this into action,” he said. (gis)Topics :last_img read more

Lynagh: O’Connell should lead Lions

Lynagh: O’Connell should lead Lions

first_img Press Association Bookmakers suspended betting on the captaincy after Warburton was backed heavily late last week, and the Wales flanker is expected to be unveiled when the squad is announced in London on Tuesday. “I guess the favourite is Warburton, but for me it has to be Paul O’Connell,” said Lynagh, speaking at the launch of Specsavers’ sponsorship of match officials for the British and Irish Lions tour to Australia. “He’s done it before, he’s a big guy, an inspirational bloke, fresh because he hasn’t played much this season and is as fit as he’s ever been. “From a political point of view you have Scottish, Welsh and English represented in the management and no Irish. Appointing O’Connell would balance things up.” Lynagh subscribes to the view that for the first time a ‘tour captain’, who would not be guaranteed his place in the Test XV, should be chosen. “I’d go down that route because it takes the pressure off who’s going to be a certainty in the team,” said Lynagh, who won 72 caps between 1984-1995. “If he’s not playing well, do you drop the captain? If you pick a tour captain then he has to perform during the opening three weeks of the tour to get in the Test team. That would be interesting.” O’Connell, who has missed most of the season with a back injury, became a genuine contender following an epic display for Munster against Harlequins in the Heineken Cup quarter-finals. center_img Australia great Michael Lynagh views Paul O’Connell as the best man to lead the British and Irish Lions this summer, but predicts that Warren Gatland will opt for Sam Warburton.last_img read more
