The Rise of the Female Chief Technical Officer in Asia Pacific
What’s included in the article?
In this article from the Summer 2020 edition of the Armstrong Craven Review, our experts analyse how organisations in the Asia Pacific region are paving the way for gender diversity at board-level technology roles.
By analysing the number of females in different APAC countries, our experts have been able to observe the rise of the female CTO and discover how these organisations are enabling their senior female leaders to thrive.
The article covers key issues such as:
- Observations from the APAC market
- How are companies developing female tech leaders?
Across all sectors, hiring women into technology leadership roles is particularly challenging, as these are roles which traditionally have been held by men within a male-dominated function of the business.
There is increased demand for senior technology leaders across many sectors. Over the last five to eight years, many businesses outside of the technology sector have been focused on digitisation. Digitising everything from HR systems to eCommerce platforms, marketing, processes and supply chain takes time, and this digital transformation requires restructuring, acquisition of new digital skills and creation of new technology roles.
In almost all cases, there have been increases in the importance and number of senior-level technology roles, especially in a growing region such as Asia Pacific. This has presented an opportunity to bring new female leaders into organisations and address the gender balance across leadership teams.
