The inclusion of women leading in the STEAM sector has always been very important, and more than ever, it has become a necessity. An example of this can be seen in the growing number of women leading the path of entrepreneurship to develop solutions for their problems.

We still have work to do

Referring to Tony Danker, Director-General at CBI, in the annual FTSE Women Leaders Review report “The moral and business case for gender diversity is watertight. But the job is far from done. As we emerge from the pandemic, there’s more that needs to be done to dismantle the barriers that prevent women from rising to the top. Businesses have a vital role to play in achieving a more inclusive economy, where work enables all talent to progress”.

And we still have a lot of work to do. Although the pandemic has been an effervescent process on the part of businesses in the digitalisation and automation of many processes, synonymous with progress, there are still barriers that prevent capable women from reaching decision-making positions. In other words, at the executive level of companies.

This is why DEI policies are gaining more and more momentum in the business environment. An example of the successful implementation of such policies can be seen in what Personio did.
