Onecom has pledged to take action to increase the number of females taking up technology roles by signing up to the ‘Tech She Can Charter’.
Charter signatories commit to work with schools to inspire pupils to consider a career in technology; to ensure inclusive access to technology roles in their own organisations; and to create the right environment to attract, recruit and retain female employees.
Parysa Hosseini-Sech, Head of Human Resources at Onecom, said: “We’re already seeing the huge impact technology is having on our lives. If the sector and people in technology roles don’t reflect wider society there’s a real risk that the products and technology advances will be biased.”
She added: “This is our chance to build a diverse and inclusive pipeline of technology talent, which will help position UK businesses at the forefront of innovation and investment in the future.”
