The ICT industry is fundamentally dependent upon a rich talent pool. The complexity of the problems that it solves requires a broad diversity of experience, knowledge and skill. It simply cannot afford to ignore any under-represented sector of its labour pool. Yet female engagement in the industry workforce has hovered at 25% for over a decade. Clearly interventions are required to make sure the industry effectively engages, retains and rewards women. The industry is rich with examples of companies that have understood the benefits of diversity, established strategies for inclusion and are reaping the business benefits of this approach.
The Executive Forum on Gender Diversity is designed to share lessons learned and best practices as the industry tries to engage more women in its workforce. This Forum is targeted at senior executives and human resource strategists. Its objective is to deepen our understanding of the business imperative on gender diversity and to provide "how to" information on designing appropriate diversity strategies for large, medium and small companies.
