Bulgaria Holds Highest Number of Women in Tech Fields

 
 
 

According to Eurostat, one of the poorest countries in the world holds the highest number of women in information and communication technology. Across Europe, the average percentage of women in the tech workforce is around 17.2. Bulgaria, though, is striving to become a technology center of the world and holds the highest average at 26.5 percent. Despite gender differences, Bulgarians have historically centered their lives around work which made women and men equally responsible for bringing home an income. This mentality has continued over time and pushed Bulgaria to #1 on the list of most women in tech, with the U.S. close behind.
