Gender imbalance in the ICT field (Гендерній дисбаланс в сфере ИКТ)

Tue 18.4.2017 5:10 pm

There is a gender imbalance in the ICT field. It manifests at different levels. For example, the most of the students are guys among students in the computer science and information technology specialty. The same gender imbalance is revealed among postgraduates. Also, the most of IT professionals are male in IT companies.  How to overcome this gender imbalance?

Workforce diversification is a key component towards prosperous future of the company and asset upraise. But even nowadays, women's opinion sometimes misheard, put off the line, and treated badly. How do we finally eradicate this problem in the years ahead? Humanity has experience of female oppression coming back to previous centuries when they were not eligible for class attendance, voting process,etc. Everyone knows its consequences of ignorance of that issue and women's influential role removal from business and social life.

Our university has a great experience in holding student Olympiads in sports programming of regional and all-Ukrainian level. Mainly men's teams participate in these competitions. We can organize a separate nomination  for women's teams at such olympiads.

Проблема очень важная и её безусловно стоит решать, хотя ответ не всегда лежит на поверхности. Многие девушки студентки выбирают гуманитарные специальности из-за того, что считают IT сферу слишком сложной для них, считают, что не смогут в ней разобраться. Возможно, стоит проводить какие-то мероприятия, показывающие что это не так сложно, как кажется на первый взгляд.

Yes really, there is gender imbalance in the ICT field. I am studying at the Computer Sciences speciality, but in my group vice versa the most of the students are girls. But what is the problem? It just need to accept like a fact. Who cares how many guys or girls in the ICT field? The main thing is to provide a quality education for all students and not to separate them according to gender. Because first of all we need to get knowledges at the university and become a high qualified specialists.
