The current state of women in the digital world is far from balanced, and depending on the country and company, across Europe there is only 1 woman employed in ICT to 5 or 7 men. In Malta, however, there have been as yet insufficiently detailed statistics and qualitative data collated from the Maltese Digital Sector on the actual rates of women employment, on perceptions, challenges and initiatives in this sense.
The eSkills Malta Foundation who is continuously working on different initiatives to improve this situation, is currently implementing a project aimed to study the gender balance in the Digital sector in Malta.
Ascend Consulting has been entrusted to conduct this study and we need your opinion to ensure that we can perform an in-depth analysis of the overall Maltese digital sector. Thus, if your organisation is active in the ICT sector per se, or otherwise is making significant use of ICT in its operations and has in-house ICT dedicated staff (no matter the specific economic sector it is active in, including in the public sector), your honest feedback in this questionnaire is much appreciated!
The questionnaire will take no longer than 10-15 minutes of your time. Unless specifically agreed otherwise by respondent organisations, only aggregated and anonymized information will be included in a final report that will summarize the findings of this survey.
If you have received this email and you feel you do not have the necessary information to fulfil this questionnaire, we kindly ask you to forward this to your Human Resources Department and/or the IT Department of your organisation.
