Gender gap


In celebration of International Women’s Day, David Burnie’s company hosted a fireside chat in partnership with Bell on empowering women in the technology and automation industry. He shares the video and transcript from the conversation.

The theme for International Women’s Day 2021 is #ChoosetoChallenge. Though the technology and automation industry has come a long way in gender equality, there remains a gender gap three times larger than that in other industries. The World Economic Forum estimates that more than 70% of professionals with artificial intelligence (AI) skills are men.

From challenge comes change, so let’s choose to challenge the gender gap in the technology and automation industry.


Key topics covered in this webinar:

  • Why it is important for organizations to promote opportunities for women in automation throughout the career cycle.
  • How women in tech and automation can develop a long-term career plan.
  • Advice for young women who are considering a career in Automation.
  • How young women can find mentors, and how we encourage women to dream bigger.
