Certification Magazine Tips Cap to Female Certified IT Professionals


How much do you know about women in IT? Would you like to know more?Speaking of people who conduct IT certification-centric surveys and report their findings, the team at Certification Magazine acknowledged International Women's Day (Sunday, March 8) at the end of last week by using its weekly Deep Focus article to paint a picture of female certified IT professionals. Instead of focusing on a set of individuals from its annual Salary Survey who hold the same IT certification, the article zooms in on the IT-certified women who participated in the survey. The general scarcity of women in IT professions is reflected in that fact that, of the more than 5,000 certified IT professionals who participated in the 2020 Salary Survey, only 16 percent are women. The article includes (and slightly enlarges) salary data released in an earlier Salary Survey report, and goes on to reveal data about IT-certified women's educational background, working hours, job titles, and more.
