A study in the US by Trust Radius shows that females are more likely to be laid off or furloughed than their male counterparts, due to holding entry level positions. Moreover, with hiring plans on hold and an increased need for childcare due to work from home initiatives, the future looks bleak for women holding/looking for employment in Tech. What can be done to make sure the efforts for diversity in Tech are still on top of the agenda, despite a worldwide pandemic? And how can technology itself help us solve this problem by providing software and platforms that can reshape prejudiced human behaviour?
