Inspiring women in technology to come forward and break gender stereotypes in the technology field
WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–10Pearls, a global digital transformation partner helping businesses with strategy consulting, product innovation, digital marketing, and software development partner, proudly announces the launch of a new chapter of its ‘Women in Tech’ event, scheduled for February 10, 2024, in Costa Rica.
As part of 10Pearls’ growth, it has made significant investments in Latin America (LATAM), allowing its enterprise clients access to a broader specialized talent pool with cost and time zone advantages. Since 2021, it has established nearshore operations in Costa Rica, Colombia and Peru with software development and digital engineering expertise in advanced and cutting-edge technologies, such as AI/ML.
The cornerstone of a growth organization is the diversity of its workforce, and 10Pearls recognized the substantial gender gap within the tech industry in the region, sparking the motivation to launch a new chapter of Women in Tech.
10Pearls has a long track record of championing the empowerment of Women in Tech in emerging markets. For the last 7 years, 10Pearls University has successfully implemented initiatives to encourage and facilitate opportunities for women to participate in the tech industry.
“At 10Pearls, we’re committed to ensuring more women in the region can unlock career pathways in the tech industry,” said Imran Aftab, CEO of 10Pearls. “We’re very proud to be introducing our Women in Tech event in Costa Rica, and, in the future, across LATAM as we expand the reach of this initiative.”
The event designed for women at all stages of tech careers, seeks to include everyone from students to seasoned professionals to allow for learning between generations and unlock diverse perspectives. This first of many events will consist of a series of talks by industry experts and professionals, with plans to incorporate a competition across the categories of coding, testing, and UX/UI design.
The World Bank estimates that only 5-15% of women in Latin America have medium or strong computer-solving skills. Initiatives such as ‘Women in Tech’ from 10Pearls have the potential to positively impact this trend and can encourage many more to explore opportunities in tech.
10Pearls was founded in 2004 by brothers Imran and Zeeshan Aftab. What began as a two-person operation is now a global business with offices in the United States, Costa Rica, Colombia, United Kingdom, Pakistan, and Peru.
