Celebrating Women’s Day with Insights! 

As we celebrate Women’s Day this year, it’s crucial to reflect on the progress made and the work that still lies ahead for achieving true equality in the workplace, especially in fields like technology. Women are breaking barriers every day, but there are still challenges to overcome!

Let’s dive into some eye-opening statistics from the Women in the Workplace report:

🔍  Women represent roughly 1 in 4 C-suite leaders, and women of colour just 1 in 16.

📉 Women of colour face the steepest drop-off in representation from entry level to C-suite positions.

👩‍💼 Women are as committed to their careers and promotions as men, especially young women and women of colour.

But here’s the game-changer: Workplace flexibility is key. It’s not just about convenience; it’s about creating an environment where everyone can thrive.

🌐 Remote work reduces microaggressions and boosts psychological safety for women.

💼 29% of women and 25% of men say remote work reduces unpleasant interactions with coworkers.

💪 Half of women and a third of men believe flexible work arrangements are crucial for future success.

So, what can we do to keep pushing for progress? Here are three steps from the report:

1️⃣  Measure outcomes and experiences to fix trouble spots.

2️⃣ Take an intersectional approach to tracking metrics.

3️⃣ Share internal goals and metrics with employees for transparency and accountability.

Now, let’s unlock your potential and empower women in tech this Women’s Day! Whether you’re a seasoned professional or just starting out, here are five tips to help you embrace your dream role:

1. Be prepared 🙋🏽‍♀️ 

Fully consider the career path you want to go down, and pinpoint where, who, and what you want to apply for. Adopting a mixture of both proactive (finding job postings yourself) and reactive (applying to jobs advertised) job hunts can stand you in good stead

2. Ensure your documents are in top shape📝

Ensure your cover letter, resume, and any internal job application questions are succinct and relevant to the role. You’re selling yourself, and this is the first chance you’re getting to showcase how great you are!

3. Research, research, research 🧐

As the saying goes, ‘failing to prepare, is preparing to fail.’ Going into the interview armed with knowledge of the job role, organization, and immediate staff members you could be working with, not only shows enthusiasm for the role but can help calm those nerves!

4. Be your biggest fan, but don’t make it about you 🗣

Sell yourself, and your attributes, and be the best version of you! Ensure, however, that you not only focus on why you’d be great for the job, but also what you can achieve for the organization!

5. Follow-up with a communication 📧 

Interview done? Now it’s time to follow up! By contacting your interviewer you’re reinforcing and showcasing your determination, enthusiasm for the role, and a drive to succeed. Be sure to thank your interviewer!
