Women & IT

As a direct result of digital transformation, the IT industry is growing. The need for skilled workers is correspondingly huge. In 2017, 55,000 jobs remained vacant in Germany. How can this gap be closed? We think women can do that.

The project "Women & IT", which started in the summer of 2018, aims to show more qualified women perspectives in IT.

We conducted a survey to find out more about the causes, which is why the proportion of women in IT is currently only 16.6%.

We thank you for the great interest in our survey and for the fact that so many supporters and participants have found each other. After intensive evaluation and processing of the results, we are pleased to finally be able to publish them. The survey revealed exciting insights and some pointers on where to start to get even more women excited about IT.
The full evaluation with all results of the survey can be downloaded as a PDF in German language here.
We appreciate your feedback!

The survey results briefly summarized:

  1. The women surveyed find IT attractive and know what advantages it offers.
    (See chapter 5. What do women think about the IT industry? From page 12 in the document Evaluation of the survey)

  2. The women surveyed count above all social skills, organizational talent and logical / analytical thinking among their strengths.
    (See chapter 3.1 Interests and strengths on page 6 in the document Evaluation of the survey)

  3. The women interviewed want jobs with opportunities for further development and a high level of meaning.
    (See chapter 3.2 Work requirements on page 8 in the document Evaluation of the survey)

  4. Many women are convinced that their strengths and interests cannot be brought into the IT industry.
    (See chapter 5. How do women think about the IT industry? On page 12 in the document Evaluation of the survey)

  5. The surveyed “non-IT-women” do not correctly weight the skills required in IT.
    (See chapter 6. What competencies does IT require? On page 15 in the document Evaluation of the survey)
