With diverse firms found to perform better, female leaders give their advice on how tech providers can make headway on making their workforce more reflective of wider society

Recent analysis of gender pay data in our sector suggests that females account for just 26.9 per cent of the workforce among resellers and MSPs, with gender diversity at a boradroom level flagged as an even more accute problem.

Research from various analysts - including McKinsey - underlines how firms with a more diverse workforce and boardroom perform better.

So what should firms who are serious about making their workforce more reflective of the wider UK population do?

In this short video, which we are running today as part of our Women in Channel Awards, we grab the thoughts of female leaders on the topic.
