Abstract

The insufficient number of women in technical occupations has gotten a lot of attention because of the consequences for diversity of genders and creativity in the workplace. The purpose of this research is to critically explore the barriers that prevent women from advancing in technical occupations and to provide ideas for creating a more equitable and welcoming workplace. This study finds important constraints such as gender prejudice, a lack of mentoring, work-life balance issues, and restricted access to leadership chances via a thorough literature analysis. This research looks into the diverse experiences that contribute to these challenges by analysing and interviews with women in technical jobs.Finally, the goal of this study is to equip organisations, governments, and industry stakeholders with practical ideas for implementing evidence-based practises that promote women in technical jobs. By eliminating identified barriers and adopting gender-inclusive initiatives, the tech sector may not only access a larger pool of talent, but also promote an atmosphere favourable to creativity, cooperation, and long-term success.
