The world economy, industry and sciences are becoming increasingly digitized, and these developments are disrupting society and familiar social processes. Women, however, are still largely underrepresented in technology fields. To create a world in which men and women have equal opportunities, women need to have an active role in technology and technological developments and access to leadership roles such as Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Technology Officers (CTOs). Zonta International is pleased to support the Zonta International Women in Information Technology Scholarship for a second pilot cycle to encourage women to pursue education, career opportunities and leadership roles in information technology.
