London, 30 April 2018 – Colt Data Centre Services (DCS) today announces its pledge to support Tech She Can, an industry charter launched to encourage inclusivity and increase the number of women working in the technology industry.
The partnership aims to challenge stereotypes in the technology industry and encourage more women to get involved in the sector. Demand for data centre capacity is growing, and with this comes the need for talented individuals of equal gender to join the field.
According to research conducted by PwC into Women in Tech, over a quarter of female students have been put off a career in technology as it is too male-dominated, with only 3 per cent of female respondents saying it’s their first choice. This is evident in the fact that 23 per cent of STEM roles are held by women, and scantly 15 per cent of STEM management roles are occupied by women.
Colt DCS joins forces with other leading industry organisations on the Tech She Can Charter to inspire more women to get involved in technology careers. It will also showcase female mentors in the industry to encourage empowerment amongst peers, as well as demonstrate the wide range of future career possibilities for young women.
“We are tremendously excited to be part of the digital transformation journey in India. The country is a hot spot of digital innovation, and there is a hugely unique opportunity for us to be the very first western data centre provider to enable the delivery of [cloud computing and services] across India, this is huge milestone for the organisation and a very exciting point in time for the expansion of our business.”
