When it comes to diversity & inclusion in the tech space, it’s no secret that the industry is lacking. Gender disparity is wide with only 26% of computing jobs being held by women. In addition, the turnover rate is more than twice as high for women than it is for men in tech industry jobs — 41% versus 17%1. SADA is committed to closing the gap by implementing strategies and practices that support an inclusive, diverse, and supportive environment. For example, SADA has implemented the RecruitHER tool to analyze our own microaggressions and tackle unconscious biases in job descriptions. Other efforts include:
- Paid maternity leave
- Promoting from within through professional development and mentoring
- Sponsoring booths at Women Impact Tech and the Society of Women Engineers Conference to network with hundreds of female engineers
- Partnering with alternative coding schools to help non-traditional engineering students become successful cloud engineers
In honor of International Women’s Day and to celebrate women in tech, we’ve rounded up eight of SADA’s Cloud N Clear podcasts that feature interviews with women who are making an impact in the cloud computing industry. The Cloud N Clear podcast explores how organizations are transforming the way their people work, and the way their industry goes to market in the context of Google Cloud. It features experts from SADA, partners, and customers discussing and debating what digital transformation means in the real world. Check out the following podcasts to hear eight inspiring female leaders speak on topics like workforce transformation, market trends, engineering culture, diversity & inclusion, digital marketing, and more.
