Women in the digital economy - A representative survey

Studies and research projects on women in digitalization

Digitalization is the greatest promise of prosperity and progress since industrialization.

The economy can only fulfill the promise and the pursuit of innovation and competitiveness with more women.  However, women do not always have it easy, especially in the digital industry: hard entry, more frequent exit and few opportunities to make the top of the list. The reason is often the lack of support from employers. Our first project in the economy topic area takes a look at the economy as a whole and at the ICT industry and wants to find out where we are right now, what goals companies have, what opportunities and hurdles, and what concrete measures are in place to promote women.

Even if access is successful, more than half of women leave the digital industry again. Hardly any make it into top management.
