Women in Tech Stats
“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made.” —Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Women are woefully underrepresented in STEM fields, especially computer, math, and engineering fields.
When we’re not in the leadership room, our voices aren’t represented in decisions about which markets to go after (or to ignore), which products to develop for whom, which technology to invest in or who to test on, who to hire or promote, and how the organization itself will operate.
Unfortunately, gender bias in the workforce is not just about what gets promoted or toxic environments. It can also be deadly!
It's not all bad news!
Doing well by doing good. Where women in the workplace are concerned, this is not just a catchy phrase — doing good holds powerful economic weight. Did you know that women are a key lever that can help organizations outperform their competitors, capture huge untapped growth potential, and remain relevant in tomorrow’s marketplaces.
Women are the secret weapon to growth and competitive advantage!
Conversely, organizations that continue business as usual risk being disrupted.
The average life-span of companies listed in Standard & Poor’s 500 was 61 years in 1958. Today, it's about 16 years. McKinsey says in ten years, 75% of the companies on the S&P 500 will have disappeared.
The keys to relevancy, profitability, and growth are right in front us. Women, especially women in tech!
