Why did Darktrace join WISE?
“Critical to Darktrace’s success is our workforce, comprised of 40% women against the backdrop of an industry average of only half of that, as well as the leadership of an executive team where women hold many of the senior roles. Defying the status quo is the secret sauce of creating breakthrough innovations. It takes a multitude of different skills and backgrounds to build a standout AI-business – we need storytellers, linguists, ethicists, and accountants too. We are proud sponsors of WISE and I am passionate about encouraging more women to break the mould and pursue STEM subjects and careers in the wider technology sector.”
