ISG launches expanded Women in Digital program
Information Services Group, a leading global technology research and advisory firm, has launched a series of initiatives as part of its Women in Digital program to support the advancement of women in the technology industry.
The ISG Women in Digital initiatives include networking dinners and the launch of new mentorship, educational and event opportunities for women leaders. The dinners are intended to bring together women to discuss workplace issues, advancement and industry trends.
"The ISG Women in Digital program promotes diversity and inclusion in global IT and digital business, offering mentorship, educational and networking opportunities as well as recognition to women leaders who are engaged in digital transformation programs," explains Lois Coatney, partner and global leader, ISG Managed Services said. "The program was founded on the knowledge that diversity enhances innovation, increases quality and stability, and enables enterprises to achieve their highest potential."
The firm specializes in digital transformation services, including automation, cloud and data analytics; sourcing advisory; managed governance and risk services; network carrier services; strategy and operations design; change management; market intelligence and technology research and analysis. Founded in 2006, and based in Stamford, Conn., ISG employs more than 1,300 professionals operating in more than 20 countries.
As part of the Women in Digital program, ISG also will host a monthly "Women in Digital Presents" webinar series for innovative women who have brought digital ideas to life to share their successes and challenges. Another forum for the support and discussion of advancing women in the digital market and workplace – the ISG-created Women in Digital LinkedIn site – has more than 500 active members, and ISG is targeting the group to grow to 1,000 members by year end.
Additional ISG Women in Digital initiatives will be launched going forward.
"We are expanding the ISG Women in Digital program to bring additional visibility to women across our industry, and to provide opportunities for all of us – men and women alike – to contribute to this very important initiative," Coatney explains. "When we promote diversity and inclusion in global IT and digital business, recognize women who are engaged in digital transformation programs, and work to increase the number of women who are prominent in technology, it inspires more women to be engaged."
