Academic Trajectory and Professional Performance: A Study on Peruvian Women of Information Technology Information

Loading Events

In Peru, less than 1% of women graduate from Information Technology (IT) careers. Research shows that women’s participation in this field has continued to decline for the last 25 years. However, the occupational field presents a vertiginous trend to generate IT-related jobs that offer attractive professional and economic prospects. The purpose of this research was to determine the relationship between the academic trajectory and the professional performance of women IT professionals through a two-stage sequential mixed investigation. The main finding of this study indicated that the proposed model is adequate to explain the relationship between the academic trajectory and professional performance of women IT professionals. The results show that women IT professionals have a particular profile characterized by superior academic performance and personality traits based on conscientiousness and emotional stability, important attributes to transit through academic environments where they represent a minority. Likewise, the internships allow them to develop general skills that favor their professional performance. Speaker(s): Nadia Rodriguez-Rodriguez, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/371082
