Dana Farrugia

The lack of women in leadership positions locally and globally is a known phenomenon, but when it comes to women leading in the tech space, their presence is even more sparse.

Dana Farrugia, CEO of Tech.MT – a public-private partnership between Government and The Malta Chamber that seeks to promote Malta as a centre of excellence in the tech world – shared her thoughts on the lack of women in the tech sector in a conversation with Caroline Paris, the founder of jewellery brand, Mon Eclat.

She asserts that the absence of women in tech is a “blend between a conscious choice because they are interested in other sectors, or because the topic was not promoted enough at a younger age.”

However, she adds, “I believe that any girl who develops a passion for ICT/engineering or other tech related subjects can succeed and have a very fruitful career.”

Sharing her message ahead of International Women’s Day on 8th March, Ms Farrugia encourages other women to pursue a career in tech without fear.

“Be the change you want to see, with a career in tech you can change the world.”
