Data speaks the truth: only 27% of women in the UK would consider a career in tech, compared to 62% of men.
This is one of the key results from the PwC Women in Tech study, which demonstrated that there is a societal problem at the root of the gender inequality problem in the tech industry: young girls do not think about careers in the tech sector.
