Our friends at Skillcrush wanted to dive deeper to better understand the current state of diversity in tech, so they designed a survey that would do just that.
They asked a group of over 600 women and nonbinary individuals what they think about diversity and inclusion in the tech world. What are their career goals? What does diversity and inclusion mean to them? What barriers have they experienced in the tech world and how can we help?
Their answers were surprising. They were upsetting. And, at times, they were incredibly frustrating to read.
But there was also optimism sprinkled in their responses that can motivate underrepresented groups and allies to keep fighting to create a better experience for anyone who’s ever felt marginalized in the tech world.
Whether good, bad, or somewhere in between, we hope these insights will help further the conversation and encourage action around diversity and inclusion within the tech industry.
