Why must employers look to hire career switchers and women entering into the tech workforce later in life? By 2025 there will be 1 qualified woman for every 115 jobs in software, cyber, AI and machine learning. Career switchers are a valuable resource that could provide a real opportunity to address the global tech labour crisis and improve gender equality in technology. Further to this, 50% of women in tech leave their jobs before the age of 35. Our report finds that a huge 81% of women would stay in their roles if they were given the opportunity to upskill. It is key to consider that retaining female talent.
