A leading tech agency has taken the next step to improve female representation within the tech industry.
Cornwall based Thought Quarter have today announced that they have become majority female owned.
The agency, who recently celebrated their 9th year in business, have experienced significant growth since the pandemic and believe now is the right time to make this important change to their company structure.
When questioned about the decision, Thought Quarter’s Managing Director Sam Armondi, said: “As individuals, we all need to take positive action which is why I’m delighted that Allanah has taken majority ownership. I believe this is a clear statement of intent that shows we’re not just passionate about equality in the industry, but we’re committed to making the changes needed too.”
The percentage of women in a director role within the tech industry is particularly low, which highlights the importance of Thought Quarter’s decision. This trend of gender imbalance continues throughout the industry, with women making up just 26% of tech workers according to a study by Tech Nation.
“Providing a diverse and inclusive workplace is a non-negotiable for us. Already, 43% of our workforce is female but real equity is about much more than statistics.“ said Thought Quarter’s People and Culture Director, Allanah Armondi.
“By paying our team fairly, providing progression opportunities, and offering as much flexibility as we can we’re helping the careers of not just our employees, but their partners and family members too. I’m really excited to have the opportunity to lead Thought Quarter as we do even more to provide great opportunities for everyone.”
