Women in Informatics

Digitalisation is boosting the importance of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines for professions in a wide range of sectors. Women are vastly underrepresented in STEM fields today. For this reason digitalswitzerland calls on politicians, the educational system, business and society to create fair and attractive conditions for women in IT. It is crucial for society and for Switzerland as a business location that women are also well equipped to seize the opportunities presented by the transformation.

ICT skilled workforce scenario: demand forecast for 2028

ICT skilled workforce scenario: demand forecast for 2028

The number of employees in the ICT sector is growing four times as fast as in the economy as a whole. There is already an acute shortage of skilled workers, which will become even more serious in the future (see the current study on skilled workers). In order to ensure the supply of skilled workers, digitalswitzerland has identified a strong need for action.

ICT-Fachkräftesituation: Bedarfsprognose 2028 (full study only in german)

Mobilising the skilled labour potential of the 58-70 age group

As in other sectors, digitalisation and the ageing of society will be drivers for the decline in labour market supply. The ageing of society means that an increasingly large proportion of the population will no longer be available as a workforce. The overarching goal of the study is to capture the skilled labour potential of the 58 – 70 age cohort in ICT and the opportunities to activate that group.
