The IT sector is rapidly expanding in the EU market. Based on a Eurostat report, over 50% of the companies in the European Union have difficulty recruiting IT colleagues due to the shortage of skilled professionals.There is also a significant gender gap; women represent just 18% of the workforce in IT. There is no detailed report for the blockchain sector, but the prediction is the numbers are even lower. Let's inspire and include women in the blockchain technology sector by outlining opportunities!
