For several years the tech industry has been working to diversify its workforce. Today, women and traditionally underrepresented groups hold one-third of all tech jobs, according to CTA’s 2019 Economic Impact Study. However, despite the surge of tech jobs in the last three decades, the composition of the workforce hasn’t seen a shift. For example, the proportion of women in computing jobs has decreased by five percent between 1991-2017.
Successful businesses know that diverse perspectives and experiences are critical ingredients for innovation. That’s especially true in the tech industry, where the pace of innovation is moving faster than ever.
This year, CTA embarked on its first-ever diversity and inclusion study, Diversity and Inclusion: Driving Sustainable Change in the Workplace, to gain insights on the technology industry’s efforts incorporating diversity and inclusion initiatives into their business models. We assessed diversity and inclusion in the workplace, strategic priorities and measurement, and the challenges the technology industry faces in implementing changes.
