Closing the gender gap and bringing more women to cloud

Part of the On Cloud Podcast series

There's a clear gender disparity in cloud. Men outnumber women significantly. To help close that gap, it's essential to get girls in STEM early on, focus on recruiting women, and change organizational culture to be more inclusive.

Leveling the playing field for women in cloud computing

Look around at any cloud conference, and you’ll see a lopsided ratio of men to women. Why aren’t there more women in tech, and in cloud computing specifically? In this episode, David Linthicum talks with Deloitte’s Lisa Noon and Appgate’s Tamara Prazak about how to get more women into cloud. In the end, it comes down to bridging the STEM gap for girls early on, recruiting more women, and making their working lives more flexible. Cultural change also plays a big role in closing the gap.


It's going to take years to get kind of to the concept of gender parity in this business, and it's going to take all of us working together and communicating very clearly to get it done.

Lisa Noon is a managing director in our Cloud Engineering practice, leading Deloitte’s global Google Cloud solution program and driving the practice to scale. She helps enterprise clients transform by leveraging leading edge, cloud, and analytics technologies.

Tamara Prazak develops and implements programs to attract, close, and retain channel business at Appgate. In her role, she enables channel partners to create a new revenue stream while capitalizing on unprecedented demand for Zero Trust Network Access.
