Female potential, a valuable resource in the digital age

The digital revolution and the advance towards technologies such as artificial intelligence and automation have caused a greater demand for professionals in the IT industry that the market has not been able to supply.

In this scenario, female talent is a valuable resource that can respond to the new digital needs of companies. However, according to an IDB study del BID, women study fewer careers related to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, as a consequence, female participation in the technology sector, one of the sectors with the highest salary returns, is particularly low. They barely make up 42% of the people employed in the digital labor market.

The World Bank highlights that Latin America must work on four major areas to incorporate women as part of the solution:

  • Education: Strengthen curricula in STEM areas and promote more hands-on experiences.
  • Recruitment: Remove obstacles to hiring women and promote inclusive policies.
  • Retain talent: Close salary gaps, encourage flexible hours, and promote childcare services.
  • Recognition: Facilitate access to professional networks and make visible mentoring and sponsorship programs for women.

The World Bank highlights that female talent in programming, engineering, or mathematics is the answer to the high demand for technology positions, which will benefit not only data centers or IT companies, but also the productivity of economies of the countries of Latin America.

Why are women the solution to the high demand for IT talent in Latin America?

Incorporating women into IT positions may be the solution to fulfill the high demand for talent that the technology industry demands. Page Group data reveals that there is currently a deficit of 48% of professionals in Latin America. Therefore, we believe that inserting women will help solve the talent crisis and, at the same time, generate a positive impact on diversity and labor inclusion.
