#ChangetheRatio: why diversity at the top is still a conversation

Statistics show that only 17% of the ICT sector and 23% of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) workforce in the UK are women - and at lower than a 1:5 ratio, significantly less than most other sectors. Worse still, this figure actually reflects a stall in female representation in the technology sector in the last decade.

Women in Technology

The digital and technology industries are among the fastest growing industries in the UK and we’ve seen first-hand here at Lloyds Banking Group (LBG) the huge take up of digital services by individuals and organisations over recent years. The demand for seamless and intuitive digital experiences is only set to increase in the future but as an industry, it is important that we face into the looming skills gap and do more to secure more women in digital and technology roles.
