Women have been making positive strides in the technology sector but they are still in the minority when compared to their male counterparts. A new infographic takes a look at the successes and challenges of women in tech.

The infographic by IT Manager Daily covers where women are in the tech sector (US figures), the best-paying jobs for women in the tech sector, education and desired skills for a tech job, why more women in tech are needed, signs that women’s interest in tech may be growing, and organisations supporting women in tech.

For an inspirational boost, the infographic also provides quick profiles of seven women at the top of their tech companies.
