Women in tech: facts and figures

Back to all cases

Did you know women in software engineering make $0.93 for every dollar that men make in the sector? Gender imbalance and inequality are still very real. Luckily, diversity has become an increasingly important topic in the tech industry, with software companies making striding efforts to be inclusive.

Navigating the touchy subject of diversity and equality can be difficult. As author, comedian and ex-Yahoo/Google employee Sarah Cooper puts it:

"As a woman in the business world, I kept seeing other women make the same mistakes over and over again. Telling their coworkers they wanted to be promoted. Asking their managers for more money. Bringing visibility to their work, leading meetings, talking in meetings, looking around in meetings, and breathing in meetings. Seeing this, I knew my calling was to write a book that would stop the frustration of making an effort. I learned many of these tips while I was working in the male-dominated world of tech.‚ÄĚ

The result is a hilarious book with a satirical undertone that many women in tech will probably identify with. ūüėČ However, we've taken a more objective route to celebrate International Women's Day.
