Watch: “More women needed in the IT sector” – Miriam Dalli

During a meeting with the Acronis Foundation, Labour MEP Miriam Dalli admitted that there is a greater need for women working in the IT industry. 

A new training program in IT and Artificial Intelligence created especially for women was discussed in the course of the meeting.

Dr Dalli explained that this particular sector will continue to grow after the finalisation of the legal framework for the blockchain sector. However, she also said that the number of women who see this sector as the path for their personal success is very low.

The University of Malta said that during 2017/2018 out of 378 ICT students, only 70 were women.
