RAF joins Tech She Can pledge
More than 50 major organisations have now signed up to the Tech She Can Charter, a commitment to take action together to increase the number of women taking up technology roles in the UK.
The RAF is one of the latest signatories and publicly announced its commitment to Tech She Can at the Royal International Air Tattoo in July. Carol Vorderman, the first female honorary Ambassador for the RAF Air Cadets, publicly added her backing to Tech She Can and the coordinated drive to inspire more females to pursue technology careers.
The Tech She Can Charter, backed by professional services network PwC, was launched in February to tackle the reasons behind the shortfall of women in technology roles. Only 19% of the UK technology workforce is currently female. However, some of PwCís own women in tech demonstrate how RAF careers can lead to broader technology roles. Jo Salter, Britainís first female fast jet pilot for the RAF, now works as a director in PwCís technology and investments team, and PwCís drones leader, Elaine Whyte, spent 20 years in the RAF as a safety and airworthiness engineer.
