Tech Grove Connect

In celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8 and Women’s History Month in March, Tech Grove Connect is featuring the I/ITSEC 2021 Best Paper nominee in this month’s series on March 10, to  provide insight into the challenges facing women in the workforce. Authored by a team from Serco Inc., this paper was nominated by the Policy, Standards, Management and Acquisition (PSMA) Subcommittee.

The United States ranks among the last in the world for supportive work-family policies like family leave, career breaks, childcare, and gender and pay equality all of which influence career progression. Companies leading the change by adopting policies that support women and families find they can increase loyalty, engagement, productivity, performance, and create a mutually beneficial relationship for employers and employees. Companies with gender-balanced teams have a higher return on equity than less diverse peers.

This insightful study brings attention to issues faced by working women, particularly in the aerospace and defense industries. The team also offers recommendations to address those issues and strengthen the workforce, productivity, and growth of these critical national security industries through greater attraction and retention of female talent.

Registration is open and complimentary for all who wish to join.
