Opportunities Await Women Who Overcome Social ‘Tech Doubts’

Despite the growth of Cambodia’s tech industry, few women have joined the field. Longtime Cambodian tech observer Sok Sikieng says that although more women have joined the profession in recent years, there remain significant factors hindering women from reaching their tech potential.

Sikieng, a tech ambassador and lecturer of information technology at the Royal University of Phnom Penh, told the Hello VOA (Khmer) radio program last week that the increase in women working in the technology sector has not encouraged more young women to study tech-related subjects at universities.
