Challenges Faced by Women in Technology: Jordanian Experience in Academia

Suhair Bani Ata | Dr. Najah Al-Shanableh | Dr. Mazen Alzyoud

Abstract: There is a massive gap between the number of men and women employed in academia worldwide, especially in the technology field. Jordan suffers from such a lack of gender diversity. In this research, a questionnaire was used to collect demographic, social, obstacle, and discipline-specific data from women about their participation in the technology field in academia. The results showed that women face multiple barriers that prevent their advancement in academia in the information technology field. Supporting women in academia and enabling them can benefit society and women in technology in general, especially at the entry level. For these reasons, Jordanian universities must plan to support women at work in academia in general and in the technology field more specifically.
