Samenvatting

In Europe there is a deep gender imbalance in ICT professions. Only about 15% of the ICT jobs are occupied by female employees. Although the situation varies in different sectors and European countries, a gender imbalance and a professional skills shortage are common features of the ICT labour market in Europe.
At a cost to both their own opportunities and society's ability to produce people with much-needed ICT skills, women continue to be underrepresented in ICT education. They represent less than 10% of the student population in ICT university programs. Although some of the barriers that women face have their foundations in cultural expectations established well before the college level, departments can take effective steps to increase recruitment and retention of women students.
Several strategies have been and are being adopted in Europe and in The Netherlands to increase the number of female ICT students.
