The tech field lags far behind on workplace gender equality: There's a stark difference in hiring quotas, salary, and retention numbers for women in tech compared to their male counterparts - pointing out deeper inequalities and foundational problems in the industry.
I am in conversation with Paula Bratcher Ratcliff. She is the force behind Women Impact Tech, a community for collaboration, professional growth, and belonging to inspire, educate, empower, and advance women in technology. This is her big goal!
Paula argues that just because a company has a good diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) statement doesn't mean they follow through. It's about building support systems - having an active and purposeful mission to elevate your employees - especially women or other under-represented groups in your office.
A few months ago, Women Impact Tech released its first-ever Women Impact Tech 100 list, honouring the 100 top organizations where diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) statements go above and beyond to foster an equitable and thriving workplace environment for women. Coinciding with International Women's Day earlier this year, the Women Impact Tech 100 highlights the most innovative, ground-breaking tech companies that prioritize DEI initiatives in their company foundation-making it clear through tangible action that diversity is a key contributor to overall company success. The best of the progressive companies who prioritize DEI make up the 2022 Women Impact Tech 100. The list was compiled after extensive research and review using public data, including employee feedback on workplace culture for women and other under-represented groups, company benefits, and perks, and dedicated DEI efforts.
