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.
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.
