Meanwhile, Krishna Worotikan, Chief Financial Officer of Microsoft Indonesia who also leads the Diversity & Inclusion initiative, added that the collaboration program was held due to the lack of female digital talent in Indonesia. Based on his records, the number of women working in the fields of data and artificial intelligence is only 30%.

Not only that, the number of women even fell below 20% who are pursuing cloud computing. Thus, it is necessary to give more opportunities to women to be more confident in pursuing a career in this field.

“By joining Bank BTPN in this program, we believe we can accelerate the realization of an inclusive digital world. We hope that our participation can inspire other financial industry players to encourage economic growth and accelerate the transformation of digital banking in Indonesia,” he said.
