Most women in the technology sector struggle to deal with office politics, a new survey has revealed.
Conducted at a seminar organised by womenintechnology.co.uk and Societe Generale, the poll found that 77 per cent are not confident with office politics and would like to learn more about how to cope with such problems.
And 53 per cent said they had been a victim of sabotage, labelling or stereotyping in the office.
It was suggested that female professionals in the sector need to gain more confidence with the issue and become better at identifying the problem.
Maggie Berry, director of womenintechnology.co.uk, said: "All our events aim to empower women who are working in a male dominated industry and hopefully the attendees felt this was another step forward in us doing that."
The Trades Union Congress recently suggested that women are penalised in their career for having children.
