As Kubernetes becomes integral to cloud-native app strategies, the role of women has taken on a more prominent role, especially at Google.
The broader Kubernetes community also aims to bring more women into the fold, and that’s why ContainIQ put together a list of seven organizations that help women pursue careers in technology.
From Women in DevOps to Women in Infrastructure to Women Who Code – there are lots of opportunities for women to get involved and seek advice from mentors who are successful in the field.
These efforts are most welcome as the lack of female representation in the tech and security industry has been well-documented. A recent study from Stack Overflow found that less than 5% of its developers were women — and Deloitte found that women still only make up about one-third of the staff at large global technology firms. Females in technical jobs also tend to lag by 8 percentage points.
“As a staunch advocate of technology organizations focused on inclusivity, I want to stress that there’s immense power in investing in your network, amplifying the voices of female thought leaders, and leveraging your relationships and resources to achieve your goals,” said Eli Marquez, security researcher at GRIMM.
