Bridging the Gender Gap Through Allyship

November 7, 2023

The Women in Semiconductors organized by the SEMI Foundation is expanding West!  If you missed the WiS program in May, here’s another opportunity for women and men to participate in an exploration of allyship, mentorship and overcoming biases. The program will include a discussion of how to create a culture of support and belonging so that more women can grow and succeed within the semiconductor industry.

To get a sampling of the program, click HERE to review the keynote panel recording from Women in Semiconductors held in May 2023 in conjunction with ASMC.

In areas such as engineering and product management, the representation of women lags at every level. Per Zippia, women hold 5% of the leadership job in the technology sector. Women only hold 32% of director positions, 28% of supervising jobs, and 32% of individual contributor roles in the tech industry. Recent studies indicate a lack of female role models in the field (42%), gender bias in the workplace (39%), unequal growth opportunities compared to men (36%), and unequal pay for the same skills (35%).

In addition to allies and role models, key factors to women entering and staying in the microelectronics are mentorship and sponsorship, by both women and men. This critical component begins in school and continues throughout a woman’s career. These crucial relationships provide the guidance and growth opportunities which are necessary to succeed.

Who attends WiS? Regardless of gender, we encourage attendance by company leaders, managers, team members, HR professionals, academia and students, anyone responsible for developing internal or external programs to support women, and anyone interested in creating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive industry.
