International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.

In its annual report entitled The people challenge: The people challenge: Global data center staffing forecast 2021-2025, the Uptime Institute estimates that the number of personnel necessary to manage data centers around the world will grow to over 300,000 professionals by 2025. These figures demonstrate that the data center industry is growing like no other, offering a wealth of employment opportunities.

 

But are women taking advantage of all these opportunities?

The technology industry—or at least its largest players—will likely continue to close the gender gap in the year ahead. Deloitte Global predicts that large global technology firms, on average, will reach nearly 33% overall female representation in their workforces in 2022, up slightly more than 2 percentage points from 2019. According to an analysis by the Mexican Competitiveness Institute (IMCO), women make up only 3 out of every 10 professional workers choosing careers related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

For the women already at Vertiv, we have mentoring programs where male and female directors from Latin America participate, sharing their experiences and speaking about their skills. Currently, women make up 54% of participants, while women and men hold an equal number of leadership positions in Latin America.

At Vertiv we are convinced that including more women can help to address the lack of qualified professionals in the industry. We are therefore seeking to empower and inspire female STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) students to be a part of the data center industry through a variety of initiatives supported by coaching and mentoring.

 

New challenges and opportunities for women in the Data Center Industry

Vertiv wants to share the insights and great accomplishments that Vertiv Women have achieved in the Data Center Industry. They are going to share with us their vision in terms of female inclusion.
