Only 25% of technology jobs in South Africa are held by women, and only 13% of graduates with science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) qualifications are women. Lillian Barnard, Microsoft SA CEO joined Shabhana Thaver, Investec Specialist Bank CIO for a Focus Talk that centred around how to get more women into tech from the classroom to the boardroom.
