COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - April 29, 2019 - Amzeal -- Nearly three-fourths of the women who took part in the survey believe their current employer should be doing more to help them succeed in the tech industry. 71 percent also believe that IT companies should invest in recruiting women to the field.

The global provider of business and IT support services Tek Experts releases a whitepaper, "Achieving Gender Balance: Views from Across the IT Industry," based on research from their international survey of women working in the technology sector.
