Breaking the glass ceiling: Women to represent over a third of tech professionals by 2030

Anastasia Denisova, the co-founder and CEO of Realiste MENA, a leading proptech startup in the UAE that develops AI-based products for real estate investments, has made a bold prediction for the future of women in the tech sector. She stated that women may make up 30% of the tech industry in the MENA region by 2030.

Realiste MENA has been at the forefront of innovation in the real estate industry, using artificial intelligence and other cutting-edge technologies to transform the way people invest in property. The company’s CEO Anastasia Denisova is also an advocate for diversity and inclusion in the tech industry, recognizing the important role that women can play in driving innovation and growth.

According to Anastasia Denisova, the MENA region has made significant strides in promoting gender equality in recent years, and there are many talented women who are already making a difference in the tech sector. However, she believes that there is still much work to be done to ensure that women have equal opportunities to succeed in the industry.

‘In MENA, I see numerous smart powerful women who move the tech industry in the region forward. I believe, that with all the efforts of government and private sectors there will be even more female professionals who run or lead innovative startups’, Anastasia Denisova says.

The CEO’s prediction aligns with a growing trend in the tech sector towards greater gender diversity and inclusion. Many companies are recognizing the benefits of having a more diverse workforce, including better innovation, increased productivity, and higher profitability.

According to recent data, 23% of startups founded in the region in 2020 were led by women. Furthermore, women in the MENA countries comprise nearly half, and sometimes more, of STEM students at the university level. Eleven of the 18 Arab states have a majority of female science graduates. This trend has resulted in women playing a significant role in high-profile tech projects in the region, such as the UAE’s Mars Hope probe, where women made up 80% of the scientists involved.

Realiste MENA is committed to being part of this movement towards greater diversity and inclusion, and the company is actively working to support and empower women in the tech industry. Anastasia Denisova’s prediction serves as a call to action for other companies and organizations to join this important cause.
