Pathways to Technology Careers for Women is a webinar that takes place on Thursday, 3rd June 2021 from 17:30 – 19:00.
Pathways to Technology Careers for Women
Pathways to Technology Careers for Women is an outreach event that is taking place in order to encourage females to consider career pathways in the IT industry.
Many women in Ireland have never considered careers in IT. According to latest figures from the Central Statistics Office, less than 25% of STEM jobs in Ireland are filled by women. Less than half (46%) of those in employment were female in 2019. The vast majority (90.9%) of workers in Skilled Trades were male while most workers (79.3%) in Caring, Leisure and Other Services were female.
COVID-19 has further heightened the need for IT skilled workers and as demand for remote working and learning grows, growth in IT will follow. As many individuals struggle with job loss, providing short-term training programs can offset the unemployment gap and restore dislocated workers with jobs of the future.
The panelists will discuss their current positions and how they embarked on their career pathways and obstacles they overcame along the way. They will also outline the opportunities for females entering into the IT industry and show how to take that first step on Pathways to Technology Careers.
Whether you are looking for a job in the Tech & IT sectors in Ireland or you’re an employer recruiting for skilled talent, Tech Careers Expo will be the place to be on 15th July, 2021! The Expo will be a Virtual Recruitment Expo and dedicated to Tech & IT professionals seeking new opportunities in 2021 and will provide you with an opportunity to meet some of the leading tech companies in Ireland and the World face-to-face in a constructive environment.
If you’ve had enough of submitting your CV online without the opportunity to make a lasting first impression, here’s your chance to change your strategy and do a bit of networking – all on the same day.
