Increasing IT awareness among women

Mrs. Bianca Debaets

On 15 February, the non-profit association Interface3 organised an IT awareness seminar at the BRIC intended for women. The event was attended by the Secretary of State for Informatics, Digital transition and Equal opportunities. Ms Bianca Debaets took the opportunity to stress that there are not enough women in IT: “In Brussels, just 27 % of entrepreneurs are women, and only 10 % of women work in IT, even though it has now been proved that businesses favouring significant diversity generate bigger profits. So there is still a lot of work to be done in the Brussels-Capital Region!”

The non-profit association Interface3 works to extend and diversify the areas of professional investment open to women and enable them to lay solid foundations for a professional career in a labour market within which computing skills are not just a significant asset but have become essential.
