Women – AN ANSWER TO IRELAND'S IT SKILLS SHORTAGE?

One Friday 2nd May, Hays IT launched their report - ‘Women in IT – untapped answer to the skills shortage’ at a packed forum in Citi’s Headquarters in Dublin’s IFSC. The report, endorsed by the Tánaiste, studied why only 24% of the IT workforce is female and provided recommendations on how to achieve employment parity and fill an extra 22,000 jobs.
