163 Voices: Women in Tech Speak Up

We surveyed women in the tech industry to shed light on the power imbalance and ask about their experiences, inspirations, and challenges.

These stories are individual ones, but they are not unique. They resonate. They will move you. They will spark conversations. They will change the way you see the women you work with every day.

Who cares about 163 voices in an industry of millions?

This report is not about stats. Humans connect through stories, not numbers. So this report contains vignettes from smart, capable, brave women in tech, discussing why they joined tech, their greatest accomplishments, the discrimination they’ve faced, how they address bias, how they evaluate potential employers, and who inspires them.

So, who is this report for?

Do you work in tech? Are you a woman in the workplace? Are you a man in the workplace? Are you a leader in a tech organization?
This report is for you. Download it. Devour it. Think about it. Show it to someone else who needs to read it.
