On the occasion of International Women’s DayByte TI today held a new meeting in which Ignacio Sáez, Managing Director of MKM Publicaciones, publishers of Byte TI, had the opportunity to chat with a total of 8 women about the Role of Women in the ICT Sector.
The meeting was attended by: Ana Amatriain, CIO Volkswagen Navarra Raquel García Lozano, IT BP & Country Head Spain of Merck Virginia Vera, IT & Strategic Planning Director of FRIT RAVICH Mabel González Centenera, CISO SERMAS Mª José Talavera, General Director of VMware Delia Gómez Marzo, Data & Intelligence Manager at Encamina Eva Martínez Hernández, HR Director at Viewnext (IBM group) Susana Durán, VP Engineer at Sage During the meeting, they discussed the obstacles that women may encounter throughout their careers, from STEM or education, where neither in the first educational cycles nor in higher education is it encouraged that girls and young people bet on technical training. And it is that, the female representation in technology management positions, women are underrepresented in a sector dominated mostly by men. Fortunately, little by little this is changing, although perhaps not at the rate it should. Do not miss the very interesting meeting.
