The gender inequality in the technology sector remains one of the widest in the country. Although it is slowly closing, women are still at a numeral disadvantage. The fact EDF Energy opened this competition to both genders in interests of fairness is therefore, in my opinion, unfounded. Yes, from a short-term point of view it is easier to allow boys and girls to participate if they want, but what about the bigger picture? There are already plenty of males interested in tech - why not make it more accessible to the other half of the population?
