According to the EC’s “Women active in the ICT sector” report:

  • For every 1,000 women in the EU with a degree, only 29 have a specialization in ICT compared with 95 for men
  • Only 4 in 1,000 will work in the ICT sector
  • Women are far more likely to leave the sector mid-career

So, the time for action is NOW! The main goal is to increase the share of women on all levels of ICT fields.

If you want to learn more about the current gender distribution in each Research Performing Organisation involved in the project, check the new dedicated page, which aims to present the progress of the implementation of Gender Equality Plans. On the menu, you can navigate through the (7) different cases of project RPOs which develop Gender Equality Plan. During the course of the project, we will update this section to inform you about the progress achieved and to meet the new developments after each implementation phase.
