The importance technology plays within an enterprise will only continue to gain momentum as more developers, engineers, and programmers enter the workforce. As these segments continue to grow, so does the diversity of the workforce within the technology field. For a field that is severely constrained by a talent and skills gap, this influx of bodies can only be a good thing. Beyond the basic ability to deliver of identified capabilities a diverse workforce, whether cultural or gender influenced offers a whole that is more than the sum of the parts. Finding ways to drive and increase diversity in IT then should be a key focus for every IT executive.
