Women in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Georgia - Participation and Challenges
Human capital in ICT is a driving force for digital and digital-enabled innovations and is considered crucial for the competitiveness of modern-day economies. With the ICT sector heavily gender segregated and facing a huge demand for new specialists, the greater involvement of women is crucial for the support of the digitalization process and growth of economies.
Women in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Georgia – Participation and Challenges focuses on exploring the main barriers faced by women in the ICT sector in Georgia and provides action-oriented recommendations of ways to reduce such barriers and, as a result, increase women’s participation in the ICT sector.
