Where are the women ?
Something must be wrong when a dynamic industry full of career opportunities is being
rejected by so many women. Fortunately, serious attempts to redress the balance are now
underway.
But what is it about our industry that makes it so unattractive to women? The work is varied,
stimulating, flexible and, compared to other industries, well paid. IT should be overwhelmed
with potential candidates.
5
According to research carried out by the E-Skills National Training Organization, the industry
fails to get this positive image across. Many women are put off by negative stereotypes while
still in their teens. IT is plagued by the reputation of being full of geeks and loners who spend
their days glued to computer screens.
10
A government scheme to set up computer clubs for girls aged 11 to 13 aims to show them that
IT is fun and can provide a career full of excellent opportunities. Another initiative to
engender enthusiasm among young people is the introduction of so-called ambassadors who
will act as role models and help out in the classroom. [Trade and industry secretary] Patricia
Hewitt has expressed a wish that at least half of these ambassadors should be women. Female
role models are seen as a key part of the strategy to dispel the myth that IT is a male-only
club.
15
It is not only those in education who need to have their perception of IT altered. Another
government scheme is specifically targeting women who have taken time out of their career to
raise a family. The Web Wise Women programme, which was launched last year in Northern
Ireland aims to give women returning to work the skills they need to find a job in the
technology industry. The 26-week course includes 10 weeks
of computer and marketing
training and a 16-week placement. Madeleine McMillan took the course after seeing it
advertised in the local press. BT supplied her
with a PC and Internet access at home, Parity
provided the training and government funding took care of the cost of childcare. She was
trained to design basic Web sites, set up databases, use the Internet, and become proficient in
all the main Microsoft packages. McMillan did her placement with BT. The company offered
her a permanent position as an e-channel content manager at the end of the course. Other
students have also been taken on by their placement companies.

Women returning to work after a career break often still have family commitments, so
promoting flexible working hours in the IT sector could give recruitment a huge boost. The
government
has allocated £1 m to help companies develop flexible working schemes.

Julia Vale, an analyst at KPMG, believes that the problem is not that women leave to have
families; it is that they either don’t join in the first place or find that they have limited
prospects when they are there. “The IT industry needs to accept that men and women are
different, and to support women in the workplace by putting women on the agenda.”

Mais qu’y a-t-il dans notre secteur d’activité pour qu’il soit aussi rebutant pour les femmes ?
Le travail y est stimulant, offre variété et flexibilité, et il est comparativement bien payé.
L’informatique devrait crouler sous les candidatures.
D’après une étude menée par
The E-Skills National Training Organization
(l’Organisme
National de la Formation à l’Informatique en Ligne), ce secteur n’arrive pas à faire passer une
image positive. De nombreuses femmes sont découragées dès l’adolescence par des clichés
peu valorisants. L’informatique souffre de sa réputation de repaire de cinglés et de solitaires
qui passent leur temps rivés à leurs écrans d’ordinateurs.
Il faut faire changer l’image de l’informatique et pas seulement chez les spécialistes de
l’éducation. Un autre dispositif public s’adresse spécifiquement aux femmes qui ont
interrompu leurs carrières pour élever leurs enfants. Le programme
Web Wise Women
(Petites
Malines de la Toile), lancé l’année dernière en Irlande du Nord,
a pour but de donner aux
femmes qui reprennent le travail, les compétences nécessaires pour trouver un emploi dans
l’informatique. Le cours de 26 semaines comprend 10 semaines de formation à l’informatique
et au marketing, ainsi qu’un stage de 16 semaines. Madeleine Mc Millan s’est inscrite
à ce
cours après avoir vu une publicité dans la presse locale.

On pourra y ajouter la complémentarité hommes-femmes et envisager éventuellement la place

aigu des relations.
