Solving gender gap in tech will help fix skill shortage

A new project (FUI - data centers) had a kick off on November 30, 2015 at LuleƄ University of Technology with about 30 participants from academia and industry. This project has focus on development of the data center industry, based on the regional data center strategy that has been developed for the Northern Sweden. The project aims to create a world leading region for data center establishments. As women are still not choosing tech careers it limits the pool of qualified people available and this is one of the drivers of the project to strive for a more inclusive working environment in the data center industry.
