Should women be building the future of tech innovation?

April 8, 2019

This is a fascinating read that many women (and hopefully men) in the tech space will be able to relate to. The need for a social conscience and emotional intelligence in a world which is now wired to operate through digital platforms is essential. Yet research and investment in these areas are so often absent when tech projects are in their development stage. The author quotes a stat from the Kauffman Foundation that ‘women-led private technology companies achieve 35% higher ROI and 12% higher revenue than start-ups run by men’ – controversial perhaps, but there it is. The fact that women are often cited as being more tuned in to social and emotional issues cannot be a coincidence. I have certainly noticed a trend towards women leaning more towards roles in the Managerial/Organisational/Strategic/Functional areas of business in the IT industry, rather than technical. Tech is clearly changing the way we live and will continue to do so. I believe more emotional intelligence is required to balance this. #itrustpartnering #tech
