Expert Predictions On How The Tech Industry Can Better Support WomenChargebacks911® Founder Monica Eaton Shares Her Insights on the Tech Gender Gap

March 8, 2023 | 2 min read


For International Women’s Day, the folks at TechRound collected predictions from more than two dozens of industry experts, including Chargebacks911 Founder Monica Eaton, on how the tech industry can better support women.

TechRound represents “the voice of UK startups.” They are the UK's fastest-growing platform for startups, UK and international businesses, entrepreneurs and tech businesses, as well as anyone seeking to gain exposure to the UK startup market. They offer articles, insights, interviews, and how-to-guides for startups and business.

As noted in the article, women make up just 28% of the tech industry workforce. Diverse workforces allow employers to tap into a larger talent pool and benefit from a wider range of experiences and expertise.

“Not only is this a moral judgement – it’s also smart business,” Monica explains in the article. “Varied perspectives make for a more dynamic, in-touch and ultimately sustainable organization. To build technology that works, everyone who uses it will need to be represented with a seat at the table.”

Monica holds that the best approach here is to start early. Tech leaders need to invest resources into helping foster a passion for STEM education in girls, then support young women at the start of their careers with mentorship and advocacy.

“By teaming up with women at higher stages of their careers, younger women can find out how to bypass the obstacles to career progression from people who have already overcome them. Virtual meetings mean that mentors and mentees can meet from anywhere to come away with specific, actionable advice.”
