Gender diversity remains an issue across the technology and creative industries sector and the reality of these statistics is that despite these industries ‘leading the way,’ they fall short of being a good example in terms of gender equality.
STEAMWORKS Talks with a panel of experts working within Tech, Design and Education and asks the question, ‘what efforts are being made towards ‘cutting the gender skills gap.’
Kim Mackenzie Doyle, (Designer; Head of Marketing & Product Voxgig; IDI President 2017/2017; Founder of IDI-MOM & WhyDesignDotIE) noted that the present demographic for design in Ireland is 25% female to 75% male, with even lower numbers of women working in more technical aspects of design.
