Due to the scarcity of women in STEM career streams, organisations set their sights on helping the women who have selected to get into the tech industry. The women have entered this particular industry with goals of succeeding in the domains of innovation, leadership, collaboration, transformation, and creativity.
Experian is a strong advocate for the principles of inclusion, diversity and gender equality on a technologically functional level.
Exhibiting the effect of women in the technology community, many Experian women were recently honoured at the Advancing Women in Technology (AWT) organisation’s
16th Annual Scholarship event.
Jennifer Leuer, president of partner solutions at Experian, was the designated keynote speaker at the event. She communicated the importance of helping women advance by creating a confident culture, to those in attendance.
Leuer expressed that the current year’s headlines signified milestones for conditions of women within workplaces. She proceeded with stating the necessity of maintaining pace of a confident culture within workplaces, families and communities.
According to her, mentoring is one of the numerous methods that can be incorporated. By supporting women and offering different perspectives to them, they could be assisted in being confident in the face of adversities.
