Entain Launches Global Initiatives to Support Women Interested in Building Careers in Technology
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Entain Plc has launched a series of international initiatives to support girls and young women interested in building careers in technology.

Girls Who Code, an international non-profit organisation working to close the gender gap in technology, is to receive US$250K from the Entain Foundation, its not-for-profit affiliate, to support its global programmes to bring young women into the technology industry, most notably in the UK, US, Canada and India. The scale of Entain’s support makes it one of Girls Who Codes most significant global partners.

The Entain Foundation is also providing Aus. $50K funding to the Tech Girls Movement in Australia, which aims to challenge gender perceptions which limit girls’ participation in STEM through school-based early intervention programmes.

The new initiatives follow recent senior female appointments to the leadership team at Entain, including that of new chief executive Jette Nygaard-Andersen and two new non-executive board directors, Stella David and Vicky Jarman. Over 50% of Entain’s workforce is female, including over 30% in technology roles.

Jette Nygaard-Andersen, CEO of Entain, said: “I’m proud to be leading a global technology company which is making real strides in promoting women’s careers, not just in the West, but also developing markets like India where creating opportunities for young women is especially important.

“Everywhere however, the biggest challenges continue to be cultural, around what society and young women themselves believe they can do, which is why we are focusing on initiatives to support their education and build stronger pathways into technology-related careers.”

Dr. Tarika Barrett, incoming CEO of Girls Who Code, said: “Passionate, ambitious and diverse young women are the key to transforming the world and the technical workforce. This International Women’s Day, we’re excited to partner with the Entain to support young women around the world on their journey into the technical workforce. Our work together will help spur the creation of a more fair and equitable workforce, helping more women of all backgrounds rise to the top and achieve their goals of working in tech.”
