Despite the technology sector’s immense growth in recent decades and dedicated resources to attract top talent, the industry still faces a glaring gender gap. Women hold only 5% of tech leadership roles and the median woman in Silicon Valley earns 61% less than the median male. This gender inequity results in less diverse products serving a narrow range of society.
From increased profits to valuable user design perspectives, studies show that companies with gender parity fare better monetarily than their counterparts without. This project recommends an approach to measure and assess gender diversity data, helping companies understand the impact of their progress and develop strategies to achieve gender parity, including resources to empower women to develop tailored career strategies.
