European Commission Calls to Help Bridge the Gender Gap in the Digital World


European CommissionThe Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition – which works on tackling the lack of digital skills in Europe – has opened a thematic call for pledges on Women in ICT. Today, only 16% of the almost 8 million people working in ICT are women, and the number is declining. The Coalition invites organisations to pledge to focus on four strategies to help bridge the gap: digital skills for all, digital skills in education, more and better trained ICT professionals in Europe and digital skills in Europe.

Feel like getting involved? Join the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition or make a pledge (open until September 2017).
