Tim Cook, CEO of Apple: ‘Technology can’t be at the top without more diversity’ – ICT news

There are still and always too few women in technology firms worldwide, according to Apple director Tim Cook. The CEO says there is no good excuse for the lack of women in the sector. Cook further believes that technology cannot be on top without a more diverse workforce.

Cook made the remarks in an interview with the BBC. ‘I think the very essence of technology and its impact on humanity depends on the presence of women around the meeting table’, claims the CEO of Apple. According to him, technology is something sensational that makes it possible to do many things. ‘But then you have to operate from different perspectives, otherwise you’ll never reach the right solutions.’

‘Recorded progress’

The CEO points out that Apple itself has made great strides in diversity. The company’s workforce is now made up of some 35 percent women. From figures published by Deloitte Global, it appears that this percentage will reach, according to all expectations, almost 33 percent by the end of 2022 worldwide.

In the same interview, Cook also spoke about Augmented Reality (AR) and the metaverse: ‘In the future, people will wonder how we ever lived without AR in the past. Currently, we are investing a lot in this area.’
