- 54% of women believe there are now more women working in tech than five years ago.
- 63% of women cite ‘being taken seriously’ as the number one challenge in the tech industry.
- 67% of women believe ‘making a positive impact’ is the best thing about being a woman in tech.
Type “women in technology” in the Google search bar and you’ll see words like “we have a long way to go”, “gender pay gap” and “#MeToo.” This is perhaps unsurprising. Earlier this month 20,000 Google employees protested over how Google handles cases of sexual misconduct, gender inequality and systemic racism. Leaving many women to voice: “We’re done with not being taken seriously.”
