PwC is delighted to announce that Tech She Can has become an independent charity. As a charity, Tech She Can, working together with its board of Trustees and member organisations will be able to extend its reach and impact, inspiring more young girls and women to pursue a career in technology. According to PwC’s Women in tech: Time to close the gender gap report, only 3% of girls say a career in technology is their first choice.
Tech She Can was created by PwC in 2018 along with 18 founding organisations following a research initiative into why girls and young women are less likely to study technology-based subjects, and pursue tech careers. Today, it is a charity with over 200 member organisations, with the Tech She Can Strategic Partners being: PwC, Google, NatWest, Centrica, Credit Suisse, UST, Morgan Stanley, Tesco, Nationwide and Zoopla. Other members include the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and Channel 4 and come from a wide range of industries committed to collaborating to address the gender imbalance in technology roles in the UK.
