by STEMconnector

Credit Suisse’s IT Women’s Council once again hosted a fun and interactive event to celebrate International Women’s Day. This year Pierre-Olivier Bouée, Credit Suisse Chief Operating Officer and Executive Board Member, was the Keynote Speaker. In support of International Women’s Day and gender diversity across CS globally, Pierre-Olivier made some very clear points on the value of diverse groups as he is keen to achieve better representation of women in IT at CS. He elaborated on the need to change interviewing techniques to reduce decision-making rooted in bias and ensure that a diverse set of candidates is considered for every role. He also emphasized the need to focus on and actively support young women and girls in technology disciplines.  Importantly, he challenged the audience for its ideas to advance gender diversity.
