THE GENDER GAP IS GROWING IN THE PHILIPPINES

The Philippines ranked 7th among 144 countries in 2016 in the Global Gender Gap Index. Although it is not only first in ASEAN, but first in the whole of Asia, the country has yet to close the gender gap on political empowerment and economic participation and opportunities.*

It could get worse, especially for the technology sector. While there are more women in science today, gender is still seen as a disadvantage to career success for women in STEM workplaces.*

While Accenture is one company that’s making progress in getting to equal, with a 60/40 gender split, we want even more women to thrive in our digitally-driven, innovation-led world.

The daunting challenge is:
How do we get more Filipino women to pursue a tech career?

HELP CLOSE THE GAP!

Who else can create the best solutions for women—but women? Whether you’re a tech expert or just bursting with ideas, you can grow, innovate --- and enable more females to pursue tech careers and empower them for the future of work.
