Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion

For innovation to meet its fullest potential, different voices, backgrounds, genders, ethnicities and perspectives must be blended into the workforce.

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. 

To advance positive change toward greater diversity and inclusion, CTA is committed to:


Working with member companies to highlight best practices that develop and support a more diverse and inclusive industry.


Investing $10 million in venture firms and funds focused on women, people of color and other underrepresented startups and entrepreneurs.
