Why Syrian Women In Tech
The war in Syria affected millions of Syrians in Syria and worldwide, including professionals and fresh graduates starting a career, and of course, including women. The war also affected the job market regardless of the domain, which resulted in a scarcity of job opportunities.
According to the latest statistics, 41.9 % of graduates from engineering fields in Syria are women. Still, unfortunately, women remain underrepresented in the technology workforce, and they are not playing a role in shaping the tech sector in Syria.
The need for skilled talents in tech fields around the world is more evident than ever. However, the technology industry continues to restrict itself with a “boys club” image. We must add more women to the technology sector if we want them to play an integral role in the ecosystem and ultimately strengthen the industry. This is why we want to train and support the fresh Syrian talents and introduce them to the Job Market in Belgium as part of the task force. Especially now after COVID, The new norm is working remotely, and anyone can work from anywhere worldwide.
Technology touches every aspect of any society and defines the way we live, work, and think about the future. Technology is the future and one of the critical requirements for the development and prosperity of any society.
We believe all women can embrace who they are, can define their future, and can change the world.
