Swiss tech sector suffers from dearth of women


Research has shown that diversity in the workplace boosts innovation and financial success. But Switzerland’s tech sector is still lagging on this front, says Valérie Vuillerat, co-founder of Witty Works, a consultancy that helps companies root out unconscious bias. In this episode of CNNMoney’s summer series highlighting diversity, Vuillerat, a long-time advocate for more women in tech, argues that business leaders need to be more concerned about the lack of women in their ranks. “Diversity is a growth imperative and what I observe in the Swiss market is that this belief isn’t here,” she says.
