CDW Women in IT

Women comprise half the world’s population -- and more than half of the professional workforce in the United States -- but they play a disproportionately small role in inventing, managing and deploying technology across all sectors. At the same time, a study by Catalyst – a non-profit organization expanding opportunities for women and business -- reveals that companies with the highest representation of women in their management teams have a 34% higher return on investment than those with few or no women.
