We are so very excited to partner with Diverse City Careers in 2016! DCC is a unique kind of company. Firstly, both co-founders Gemma Lloyd and Valeria Ignatieva come from a tech background. Who better to find you your next awesome tech job!
DCC is a niche job site: they only advertise jobs at Australia’s top companies, who are all committed to creating ideal workplaces for women. Gemma and Valeria Ignatieva’s passion is obvious when you meet them, they really want to encourage and support more females to choose the technology industry as a career path. With females forming only 30% of the ICT workforce, and 10% of computer science graduates in Australia, they advocate that there is much work needed to be done to increase female workforce participation.
This is why DCC is “extremely excited about partnering with Tech Girls are Superheroes” and vice versa! It’s a match made in heaven 🙂 In the words of DCC, “studies have shown that stereotypes about the IT industry being for males starts at primary school age, Tech Girls are Superheroes is a fantastic initiative that aims to break this stereotype”.
