According to the National Center for Women and Information Technology Women in Tech Scorecard (NCWIT Scorecard), the percentage of female employment in computing and mathematical occupations has consistently hovered at about 25 percent since 2007. The study also found that women leave technology fields more than other science and engineering fields.
“Our industry is overdue in fostering diversity and inclusion. The Women in Tech Scholarship Program is one way we can continuously support future women leaders in tech,” said JP Werlin, Co-Founder, and CEO of PipelineDeals. “As a software company, we want to bring about positive gains for women in technology by offering encouragement that can help motivate, open doors, and support educational finances. With a focus on supporting women in tech, we can be part of a longer-term solution.”
