Zaizi’s thrilled to receive the nomination for the “Best Tech Employer (150-500 Employees)” at the 2023 Women in Tech Employer Awards.
Gender imbalance in the tech industry is a major issue. As a company, we recognise the importance of achieving gender parity and have been actively working towards this goal.
While there is still room for improvement, we’re proud to surpass other segments of the tech industry on various metrics. Women make up 37% of our workforce, which is well above the tech industry average in the UK of 28%.
Check out our recent video, where we celebrate the amazing women at Zaizi and highlight their experiences. We look at their time at Zaizi and what more we can all do to support women in tech.

Women in tech
We’re trying to drive further change and gender parity in our organisation by doing the following three things:
- Spearheading gender diversity through hiring and promotion
- Encouraging gender diversity through our culture
- Inspiring gender diversity through leadership
Tracey Robinson, Zaizi’s Chief People Officer, said: “We feel honoured and thrilled to receive recognition for our efforts to promote gender diversity in the tech industry and create an inclusive workplace for all employees.”
“We strongly believe that driving gender diversity through recruitment and advancement is critical to achieving parity, and we have implemented several initiatives to support this goal.
“”For example, through our apprenticeship program, we’re creating a positive impact and supporting underrepresented individuals. Most of the cohort in the program are women, including working mothers and career changers.
“At Zaizi, fostering gender diversity through our culture is also a top priority. Our female leaders serve as role models and champions for women in the tech industry.
“This nomination is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, and we look forward to continuing to drive positive change in the sector.”
