Fully inclusive societies need more women in technology

Technology is revolutionizing the world we live in today. It’s impacting lives and the future seems to be filled with technology-related advancements. However, only 17 % of the 8 million ICT specialists in the European Union are women.

Women in Tech

The problem here is male-dominated teams in technology restrict themselves to a male-only perspective thereby being able to solve only male-related problems. But this is changing and change is taking place rapidly. Experts believe that the latest Apple iPhone SE is designed for women who generally tend to have smaller hands. The Apple Watch also features an emergency alert button to help women be safer while walking in dangerous situations. All of these developments indicate that technology will be increasingly designed for the betterment of both genders thus creating a fully inclusive society.
