Focused on the Technology Industry, the Skills for Women in Technology – Mexico program seeks to improve the employability of 350 women within STEM careers for the technology industry.

Women who pursue a career in the IT industry are the most likely to drop out.

According to a study carried out by Accenture and Girls Who Code “it showed that 50% of women abandon technology careers at the age of 35 years and that women abandoning roles in technology have a 45% higher rate than men”.

According to the same research, exclusive training for women in technological skills is a way to create a supportive and more inclusive environment, free from implicit or explicit gender discrimination.
Private training or non-profit organizations, known as boot camps, have emerged as a mechanism to alleviate the shortage of human capital in the digital space.

As Innovation Barometer 2018 underlines, there is currently a lot of concern among business leaders about the shortage of human capital, which has the necessary digital skills to support digital transformation and innovation in companies.
