  6. 6. Tenley & Jasmin — Senior Tech Analysts CULTURE RESET | 6 Tech needs women. To attract and retain them, tech culture needs to change. Our joint research with Girls Who Code shows us five steps that could help us reach almost 3 million women working in tech in 2030.

  12. 12. A DIVERSE WORLD NEEDS TECH MADE BY DIVERSE PEOPLE • Among women of color at less-inclusive colleges in our survey, for instance, 55% found classes “inspiring,” versus 67% of other women. • Women of color in college tech programs are more likely to participate in women’s networks than other women in tech at the same school (63% vs. 50%), an indication that they are seeking out support that is otherwise missing. • LBT women in more-inclusive cultures (85%) are more than four times as likely to describe the workplace environment as “empowering,” compared with their peers in less-inclusive organizations (20%). CULTURE RESET | 12 Not every woman has the same experience; race and sexuality can have intersectional effects both at college level and workplace.

  16. 16. CULTURE RESET | 16 TOP FIVE ACTION PLAN TIPS FOR RETAINING WOMAN IN TECH: Let both parents' parent Make sure women and men are encouraged to take leave and be sure they see senior leaders doing the same thing. Make senior role models a metric Companies should set targets/goals for diversity in the leadership team. Moreover, these should be published publicly to hold leaders accountable. Send women-specific reinforcements Providing women with targeted workplace support such as mentors, sponsors and employee resource networks helps compensate for an uneven playing field. Encode creativity & innovation Environments in which employees are rewarded for creativity and innovation (which we define as creating new markets, experiences, products, services, content or processes) would appeal to many women. Meet on their terms Opportunities to network with colleagues and senior leaders should be scheduled at more inclusive times. For example, planning events during working hours ensures that employees with after-work commitments can attend.
