Technology Dispatch is an online platform that delivers the latest news and insights on technology, innovation, and the digital world. This article by Khadijah Pandor, Head of Partnerships, EMEA & NA, at Wiley Edge, describes strides being made to overcome a historical lack of diversity within the tech sector - and what more needs to be done. It is based on research published in our Diversity in Tech 2023 report.

It is clear that companies have more work to do to strengthen their DE&I policies and ensure that talent from diverse backgrounds feel encouraged to pursue a career in tech. After all, an inclusive, equitable workforce, is ultimately every enterprise’s greatest competitive advantage. Khadijah suggests how leadership teams can use DE&I strategies to create a genuine, positive impact for candidates - and their organization.

Our research showed anti-bias interview training remained the most popular DE&I strategy and use of blind CV reviews has increased. However, fewer firms published gender neutral job descriptions, which can help to avoid bias.

For details of our recommendations for improving workforce diversity over the long term, read the full article on Technology Dispatch.
