The global technology industry needs more talent. According to research by Korn Ferry, by 2030, the skilled labor shortage in tech could grow to 4.3 million workers. To serve tomorrow’s customers well, we need more students studying STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) today — students of all genders and backgrounds. We can’t fill our talent pipeline without closing the diversity gap.
As the composition of the workforce changes, companies embracing diversity and inclusion are experiencing greater innovation, productivity, engagement and employee satisfaction — along with better business performance. This coincides with a tremendous shift in buying power that mirrors changes in the workforce: women and underrepresented minorities have more economic influence than ever.
Technology is a powerful tool for breaking down barriers and creating new possibilities for our younger generations around the world. Our youth learning initiatives connect Dell’s technology and expertise with those in underserved communities who need it most.
Girls Who Code gives girls more access to opportunities in computer science. This safe and supportive environment of peers and role models helps them envision a future as computer scientists.
In many parts of the world, electricity is one of the biggest barriers for students accessing technology and all it has to offer. We’ve partnered with Computer Aid to use our technology and their international development and educational expertise to address this challenge by building Solar-Powered Learning Labs where students and communities gain access to technology. For these students, access to these Labs could change the trajectory of their lives and generations of lives after them.
University students represent an excellent source of diverse talent, so it’s vital that underrepresented students of all ethnicities and backgrounds are aware of STEM career opportunities and have the skills needed to pursue those opportunities. That’s why we’re investing in programs that reach a wide array of students, from engineering undergraduates at historically Black colleges and universities and other minority serving institutions to non-STEM graduates looking for a new career path.
Careers don't always follow a linear path, which is why retention is so critical. Statistically, women leave the technology industry at a 45% higher rate than men, according to the Center for Talent Innovation. This could be for many reasons, including starting a family, caring for a family member or going back to school. We not only welcome professionals back after taking time off, we also provide a comprehensive workforce reentry program to help them pick up where they left off.
글로벌 기술 업계에는 더 많은 인재가 필요합니다. Korn Ferry의 연구 결과에 따르면, 기술 분야에서 부족한 숙련된 인력의 수가 2030년에는 430만 명에 달할 것이라고 합니다. 미래의 고객에게 탁월한 제품과 서비스를 제공하려면 오늘날 더 많은 학생들이 성별과 배경에 관계없이 STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)을 공부하도록 지원해야 합니다. 다양성 부족 문제를 해소하지 않고서는 인재의 폭을 넓힐 수 없습니다.
변화하는 인력의 구조에 맞춰 다양성과 포용성을 수용하는 기업들은 혁신, 생산성, 업무 몰입도 및 직원 만족도 측면에서 많은 발전을 이루고 있으며 비즈니스 성과 또한 향상되고 있습니다. 이러한 인력의 변화는 급격한 구매력의 이동으로도 나타나 여성과 소외 계층의 경제적 영향력이 그 어느 때보다 커지고 있습니다.
