About WIC’s #Fortune100 Initiative

According to McKinsey, centering women in recovery efforts would grow global GDP by an estimated $13 trillion, or 16 percent, by 2030 — because when women thrive, so do their families and communities.

The favorable statistics demonstrate a marked opportunity for women to be a transformative force in cloud and AI. However, the systemic issues that affect female participation in technology create barriers to entry for many seeking access to these industries.

Women in Cloud recently rolled out the WiC Fortune 100 Initiative, a turn-key equity advancing solution for Fortune 100 companies to come together and collectively solve gender-equity challenges through representation, recruitment, and relationship building. Women In Cloud has partnered with Microsoft, Insight, Accenture, Hitachi Solutions, Teradata, Boeing and Global Affairs Canada as part of this initiative.
