Watch Capgemini UK Vice President Adele Every share her views on encouraging more women into the technology sector


Capgemini VP Adele Every wants to see more women in tech

 March 10, 2020

Adele Every, Vice President, Business Development and Innovation, at Capgemini UK, took part in a special video for rating agency Early Medtrics' Women Talk Tech series. As an expert in all things tech and public sector, Adele shared her hopes for more gender diversity.

"I think government has done a lot to look at ways to encourage girls to study STEM topics at school," says Adele, who mainly works on the HMRC Market units. "I think we have found though that it is still really hard to reach young women and encourage them to pursue a career in technology - so I think to ever expect to have gender parity in tech is a big dream although it's something I would love to see."

Adele shared that she talks to her daughter a lot about following a career in technology as she would love to see her enjoy the opportunities on offer.

"But I do think that women, especially as they go through their career and progress, reach a certain age where normally they want to start families and I think it's really tough to encourage women to then come back into quite a demanding career despite the fact that we offer huge flexibility," Adele adds.

"I think we need to be really creative about how we can address those challenges and do some really innovative things - and maybe startups hold some of the answers for some of the large companies like Capgemini and for the public sector."
