Commisioner Cretu: Romania has a high level of women representation in the digital sector

Romania is one of the countries of the European Union with a high level of representation of women in the digital sector, said European Commissioner for Regional Policy, Corina Cretu, at the third edition of the Digital Romania International Forum.

"We have a lot of research that shows that in recent years companies have performed well, much better when they have more women in leadership positions, and yet gender gap is still a reality in many sectors of the economy. This is the particular case of the communications and information technology sector, where women are still under-represented. In 2015, women accounted for only 17 per cent of the 1.4 million Europeans who chose to work in this field," said Cretu.

According to her, less than 20 per cent of the leadership positions are occupied by women, compared to 45 per cent in other sectors.

The European Commissioner has estimated that reducing gender gaps in the labor market in all areas should not be a problem of cross-country competition but a transnational objective.
