A lack of diversity in tech is fuelling the IT skills shortage

The lack of diversity in tech nothing new. But, as the technology industry and IT department face a skills crisis, bridging the gap has become a business critical issue.

Improving levels of diversity in tech is not just the right thing to do, but it is important for businesses that want to prioritise innovation and overcome the skills crisis.

From a business perspective, having the most diverse workforce possible is important for generating new ideas, while also catering for an increasingly diverse customer base.
