Meet the women and companies who are changing the face of tech.
If you read our newest ebook How to Increase Diversity in the Workplace last week, then you already know — there are some downright depressing stats out there about women in the workplace.
- Women are vastly underrepresented in STEM careers like engineering
- Women are widely considered less competent than men in STEM fields
- Two-thirds of women in technology reported having to provide more evidence of competence than men to prove themselves.
Yikes, to say the least.
But hey, don’t worry! It’s not all gloom and doom. In fact, there are some very good reasons to be excited about women in tech. For instance, did you know that companies like Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn are hiring women in tech 238% faster than men? Or that 20% of all tech startups around the world are founded by women?
Inspired by women like Sheryl Sandberg, Susan Wojcicki, and many more, Coupofy aggregated data from 30 trusted sources to form a picture of women in tech as founders, leaders and venture capitalists. Check out and learn more about hiring women in tech in our latest ebook.
