A recent study by Skillsoft revealed a disconnect between women in technology and employers. While the research showed women’s desire for professional development and career advancement, the lack of opportunity at the workplace was holding back their growth.
For example, while 86 percent of respondents cited opportunities for professional development and training as extremely or very important to them, just 42 percent said their employers currently offer this as a benefit.
Additionally, when asked about the top challenges they have faced while pursuing a tech-related career, nearly a third of women surveyed (32 percent) pointed to a lack of training.
In this context, how can organizations better equip themselves and their employees to make the most of this talented employee segment?
