In business for over 40 years, Taurus client Dicker Data (ASX:DDR) is Australia’s largest and leading value-added distributor of hardware, software, cloud and emerging technologies.
Before the work from home movement even existed, Dicker Data was already the champion of flexible working arrangements and was built on a foundation of working mums.
Employing over 500 people, today the board comprises a 50/50 male to female ratio. However, the IT sector remains heavily dominated by men, especially in executive positions. In fact, women make up a mere 29% of Australia’s tech workforce and there’s still an 18% gender pay gap. To address this, Mary says the sector needs to not only ensure opportunities are accessible to women, it needs to look at ways to attract more women to tech.
