Utah’s Women Tech Council (WTC) and Silicon Slopes announced last week that they are working together to create an industry model to attract and retain more women in technology. This model, designed to change tech cultures, will leverage and expand successful diversity and inclusion programs created by WTC while also engaging male executives and boards to help support, encourage and drive initiatives that help accelerate the number of women working for and staying in technology companies, the group said in a press statement.

“Among tech companies, culture is a consistent problem that drives women out of the industry in an average of seven years,” said Cydni Tetro, president of WTC. “We are committed to helping organizations work together to change cultures, starting here in Silicon Slopes, and build around inclusion and values that leverage the talents of everyone involved, ultimately creating a model for all technology communities.”
