According to Statistics South Africa, only 23% of professionals in science, technology, engineering and maths (Stem) fields are women. This is clearly an opportunity for diversification and transformation.
Adri Führi is chief financial officer and transformation lead at e4. She is passionate about advocating for more female-led initiatives in the IT sector.
TechCentral spoke to Führi about her vision and her practical experiences.
The barriers to entry as a young learner have been lifted, she said: the subject choices are vast and the old assumptions about the IT industry are, well, old. And tech is certainly not just about coding.
Key messages from Führi include a discussion about how companies can go about choosing the right partners as well as making impactful investments into Stem fields. Don’t miss the discussion!
