Everyone knows that technology is a historically male-dominated field. However, some companies are challenging the status quo and leading an industry charge to create more diverse workplaces. The simplest way to get more women to join your company’s ranks? Recruiting top female talent through a Fairygodboss Virtual Career Fair.

In March, Fairygodboss hosted its second virtual fair of the year, exclusively for women in technical roles. Hundreds of qualified female job seekers registered for the event, where they had the opportunity to (virtually) connect with recruiters at 25 top companies, including IBM, Asana, Home Depot, and Wells Fargo at the day-long fair.

Participants were vetted in advance of the fair to ensure they met with the event's tech-specific theme, and it truly was a qualified bunch that joined.  More than half of the women attending had more than four years of experience in technology, and a further 25 percent had at least 11 years of experience.

On top of experience in the field, the participants also proved to be highly educated. A full 77 percent of the women who participated had a Bachelor’s degree or higher — and an incredible 41 percent had a master's degree or PhD to boot.

Perhaps most importantly for diversifying the notoriously homogenous technology field, the women made up an incredibly diverse talent pool. A full 55 percent of the women identified as women of color.

And, thanks to the fair's virtual element, participants also represented every region of the United States, as well.
