A new report from the UK’s think tank Demos found that women in the technology sector in the United Kingdom and Germany are on the rise.
And women in those countries are finding it harder to find jobs.
In the U, women in tech have surpassed men as the fastest-growing workforce category in 2020.
In the U.
“It is difficult to imagine a scenario where the U has seen a rise in the proportion of women in senior positions over the last four decades,” Demos co-founder Joanna Robinson said.
“But it’s clear that the technology industry is changing rapidly, and in particular the gender balance of senior roles in tech and the business world is changing.
Women in technology are doing better in key areas of skills such as computer vision, computer programming, software engineering, and data science, but these gains have come at the cost of a shrinking share of roles in technical roles.”
In Germany, a study published this month found that, on average, the gender wage gap has decreased by 8.2% since 2005, while in the Netherlands it has increased by 1.5%.
In Germany alone, women are now making up about 7.5% of technical staff.
The number of women on senior technical roles has decreased from 11% in 2005 to 8% in 2020, according the Demos report.
In 2018, women comprised almost 20% of senior positions in the software and software-related industries in Germany, but that figure has declined to just 4% in 2018, the report said.
The number of female executives in Germany has increased from 5% to 7% in the past four years.
But they have also seen the number of senior female executive positions decrease from 7% to 4%.
Meanwhile, in the EU, women comprise just 5.5%, but that has increased to 7.7% in 2019 and 8.3% in 2021, according Demos.
In France, women have risen in senior roles, but in 2019 the percentage of women holding senior positions has decreased to just 10.5 %, down from 15.9% in 2017.
The report also found that the number and rate of women taking senior technical positions in France has decreased since 2020, but the percentage holding senior technical jobs has increased, from 7.3 to 8.6%.
In Italy, women continue to be a growing share of senior technical staff, but they remain a minority in senior technical leadership positions.
In 2021, women made up a little more than 20% in senior tech positions, but their share has increased since 2020 to 29.5%; their share of technical leadership roles has also increased from 3.7 to 4.3%.
In 2019, women represented 5.4% of the technical leadership in Italy, but it has decreased, from 9.4 to 7%.
Meanwhile in Germany and the Netherlands, women’s representation in senior management positions has increased over the same time period.
But, women still represent only 1.9 % of senior management roles in those two countries, the Demo report said, citing data from the German Federal Office for Economic Research.
“The increase in female representation is largely driven by the increase in women’s participation in technical leadership, but not necessarily by increased representation of women’s skills in technology,” Robinson said in a statement.
“The continued rise in female leadership in tech is particularly important in light of recent political events, such as the Brexit vote, where some European leaders have called for a more diverse workforce.”
Robinson added: “It is clear that there is still much work to be done in gender equality in tech in the long term.
The challenges of making sure that the talent pool is inclusive are far from over.”
