Women remain a minority in the tech industry at all levels. A 2020 https://AnitaB.org Institute study found that women are 28.8% of the tech workforce, a steady increase from 25.9% in 2018. However, women continue to leave the industry at rates far higher than cis men and the gains are not equal across race, ethnicity, age, or level. Per the Kapor Institute the American tech industry loses $16 billion every year replacing people who report leaving for unfairness. In this panel discussion we look at how far we’ve come and what we still need to do to reach fair pay, hiring, and retention in the tech workforce. WE aren’t the problem, WE are the solution. When we see, understand, and rebuild the systems around us in alignment with community values, everyone can thrive.
