Improving gender diversity in the workplace can give your business fresh ideas and a better work environment.

Women comprise more than half of the professional workforce in the United States—but they play a disproportionately small role in inventing, managing and deploying technology across all sectors. And yet companies with the highest representation of women in their management teams have a 34% higher return on investment than those with few or no women.1

CDW is committed to making the IT industry appealing to innovative and problem-solving women. As a company recognized for our high ratio of women in executive roles, we’ve sponsored a series of executive summits across the country to explore the challenges women face in IT and brainstorm solutions.

I think that we all can play a role in reducing gender bias in the workplace and that sometimes even the smallest change in our biases can lead to bigger change, thereby becoming the proverbial snowball.
