New technologies do not interest only men: many women are passionate about IT, too. A perfect example of that is our company, where over 20 percent of the employees are women. What do they think about their participation in the software industry?
“I have been working in the IT industry and in the technology community for more than ten years and I have seen a significant increase in the number of women in this environment. Even if in the next 20 years women will be not dominating the IT industry, I am sure that there will be many more of us in this sector” – Anna Szwiec, spokesperson of Women in Technology.
“Exact sciences are a broad field: they include not only mathematics and computer science, but also biology, chemistry, physics, geography, and astronomy. Women prefer some of these subjects more than others, and I do not think there is anything wrong with that. However, our main goal is supporting people’s talents, regardless of their gender” – added Urszula Kałuska, another representative of Women in Technology.
