For more women breaking stories in the Tech industry violently

There are many myths about jobs in the technology sector, and perhaps one of the main ones is that the industry is a territory reserved for the male gender. Fortunately, there are many companies that have put diversity and inclusion beyond the ethical question and today they are two essential reasons for business efficiency, which means that there are more and more women in positions of directors, managers and executives, collaborating with our skills. and the most relevant resources in this area.

This great progress has been achieved in a very short time and is documented in a study prepared by Kaspersky after a survey was applied among women in the Tech industry around the world. The study indicates that more than half (65%) of Latin American women working in technology have seen a level playing field in their organizations in recent years when it comes to equality.

One of the positive signs mentioned by the respondents comes from the fact that 76% of Latin American women answered that, from their experience, gender is not relevant to the advancement of the industry, because development depends on skills, and 67% found their skills. and experience rather than their sex in the industry for the first time applying.

Another interesting fact is that 71% of the women answered that they are confident that their opinions will be respected from the first day of work in the industry and 53% said that the number of women in management positions in their organizations has increased in recent years.

Such developments cannot be denied, however it must be recognized that there is still a need for a greater female presence in a sector that also has a serious lack of specialists: worldwide there are 3.4 million vacancies in the cyber security sector alone and they cannot be due to occupations. to whether there is a lack of talent It is time to call the next generation to fill these spaces, breaking other myths that surround the industry: a career in Tech only covers the universe of hard skills that have been said.

Nothing more false; We fail to look at the soft skills that are essential in this industry: analytical, communication, and critical thinking skills, and which are actually not as easy to acquire as technical skills. When it comes to careers, there are many opportunities in the employment sector that may not be so obvious, such as product management, project management, technical support, education, communication (including journalism), marketing, law, etc. There is no single path that leads to technology or cybersecurity.

Women who are part of the industry today, it is important to continue the mission of promoting among the new generations in this area, and another way to do this is to foster among girls and young people the positive impact of technology and, in particular; has cybersecurity in the company. In addition, we must emphasize that diversity and the contribution of different perspectives on the same subject are key to any industry, especially in a continuously evolving one such as Tech.
