In legal and statistical parlance, 'indicators' are the criteria used to measure progress towards specific objectives. Gender indicators – a sub category – have developed over the past 30 years with the aim of measuring inequalities in the fulfilment of women's rights across different countries and social systems. Since 1990, when the Gender Development Index and the Gender Empowerment Measure were generated, no less than 10 international gender indicators have been created. These indexes may vary in length, approach (e.g. which legal provisions are taken into consideration for the assessment), level of analysis (e.g. which statistical data are used and to what extent they are used), and scope (e.g. descriptive, analytical).

The information and communication technologies sector is of increasing importance to virtually every sector of the economy. There is a high demand for highly-qualified workers to fill the increasing demand of this expanding sector and women, due to their currently low presence in ICT, constitute a pool of potential candidates. This briefing paper presents a brief overview of selected literature and best-practice cases proposed by the European Commission on the issue of how to attract more women into ICT-related courses and consequently to a career in ICT. Two approaches are thus taken: firstly, an analysis of the presence of girls and young women in ICT-related courses and best practices on how to encourage them to pursue such academic path; secondly, an overview of the obstacles female workers face in their work and progression in ICT companies, and best-practice cases on how to attract more female qualified workers into the sector, how to ensure there is fair progression in their careers, and a good work-life balance.
