Bridging the Gender Gap in Technology

Bridging the Gender Gap in Technology

We sat down with Kathleen Leach, Principal at Sprint and Deputy Chair of WAS at GSMA, and Sanja Buterin, Marketing Director at Infobip

As STEM programs are introduced as early as in kindergarten along with global initiatives such as Girls Who Code and volunteer supported programs such as Girls in Tech and 1Million Women, and the Multiplier Effect, the telecom industry is raising the bar when it comes to attracting women to technology careers. The gender gap is still prominent, and more resources are needed globally. In the UK for example, women account for only 15 percent of employees in STEM-related fields. In the US, statistics show that women make up less than 20 percent of tech jobs, even though they make up more than half of the US workforce.

We sat down with Kathleen Leach, Principal at Sprint and Deputy Chair of WAS at GSMA and Sanja Buterin, Marketing Director at Infobip, during the WAS#8 conference in Rovinj, to discuss what Infobip and GSMA are doing to attract more women to their organizations.
