After the success of the first 3 editions, the 15 new participants of this fourth edition of the Talento Mujer Programme have already been selected.
Digitalisation has spread to all aspects of life, and digital skills have become basic tools for accessing the numerous professional opportunities that the current labour market offers.
However, research on the gender digital divide indicates that, despite all efforts, the gender digital divide in Europe continues to grow. Currently in Spain only 19.4% of all ICT (Technology, Information and Communication) specialists are women and only 19% of companies in the sector have women among their management staff. Thus, despite the fact that the technology sector is growing at an unstoppable rate, offering the best paid jobs and great professional opportunities, the presence of women continues to be very low and with a negative growth trend.
The University of Granada is establishing internal policies aimed at providing solutions to these challenges and, thanks to the sponsorship of technology companies based in Granada, they are committed to developing female digital talent.
The fourth edition of the “Talento Mujer 4.0” Programme will offer 15 brilliant students from different STEMS (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) university degrees the opportunity to develop their digital talent.
