If We Can Automate a Car, We Can End Pay Inequality

Posted by Zara Nanu on Jun 15, 2018 12:30:03 PM

People will make or break a business. More diverse people will go even further and make a business innovative, challenging and perhaps even more importantly, profitable. On average, a business with diverse teams will have access to increased market share and 9% higher EBIT.

But how can we build more diverse businesses when current data shows companies have high gender and ethnicity gaps? These manifest themselves both in low proportions of diverse employees as well as high pay disparities for these groups. It does not seem businesses are making the most of powering growth with the right people. 

"217 Years, for the women you work with to be operating on a level playing field, for our daughters to be in with the same chance at success as our sons."

DOES BIAS IN TECH RUN DEEP? Gender pay gap in tech and science sectors

Posted by Hazel Lush on Apr 24, 2017 11:33:00 AM

According to Lylan Masterman, Principal at White Star Capital  bias runs deep for women in tech. Are we tackling the challenges that face women by asking them to hide their identity or does expressing it outwardly work out more beneficial for women?
“the women who are working in technology today know how to triumph over adversity. This is a group that has suffered significant bias in our society — studying computer science or engineering in college, going out into the male-dominated environment of the modern tech world and succeeding despite those biases. And then, many have gone on to start companies in the tech industry despite the well-known challenges there.”

“Technical skills have always been in demand, but Boards need to create a culture, an ecosystem, around digital and digital thinking and this means increasing their functional diversity. If organisations are not disrupting their industries through digital innovation then they will be disrupted – so Boards need to keep pace to survive.”

At Gapsquare, a tech-based data-analysis company that is working to end the gender pay gap, this is interesting for two reasons:
