MeDirect contributes to debate on gender equality in the IT sector

MeDirect was one of several organisations to actively participate in a discussion which was held today on gender equality in the IT sector. The event, held to celebrate International Women’s Day, and organised by The Times of Malta’s Pink magazine at Gracy’s Arts and Supper Club in Valletta, explored ways in which the gender digital divide can be tackled across different industries.

Jessica Dingli, a Product Manager within MeDirect’s Tech Team, took part in the debate, highlighting the challenges women face in integrating into the male dominated constantly evolving world of technology and development, especially after a career break. As the employee of a bank, she also talked about the very positive impact technology has been having on women’s ability to secure financial independence.

Other aspects of the gender digital divide which were highlighted during the event included the need to focus on teaching digital skills at an early age and to do more to promote female role models in the IT sector, where women still only make up 19 per cent of the workforce.

The International Women’s Day talk and lunch organised by Pink magazine has become a keenly anticipated annual event. This year’s panel, which was moderated by Trudy Kerr, also celebrated the success of the women present in their respective careers in the tech industry with the aim of inspiring positive change.
