Meet California’s top women in tech. From streaming services to self-driving cars, these female innovators are changing the face of technology as we know it.
As of 2017, women in San Francisco's Silicon Valley tech hub occupy roughly 11% of executive positions. Moreover, the median Silicon Valley male makes 61% more than the median Silicon Valley female. Globally, women hold just 24% of computer science jobs. Evidently, gender inequality in the technology sector continues to pervade.
However, changing the state of play is possible. The tech women featured in our infographic are pioneers in their field who are pushing boundaries every day. The truth is, gender equality is smart economics. Women have a significant impact on the success of a tech company or invention.
Female-led technology businesses achieve, on average, a 35% higher return on investment than those run by men. Furthermore, a National Center for Women & Information Technology study found that technology patents produced by mixed-gender teams were cited 30-40% more than similar patents from all-male groups.
When it comes to women in tech, California leads the way. The time is NOW to embrace diversity and inclusion in order to drive your commercial objectives forward. By giving a voice to the women featured in our infographic we hope to inspire other females in tech to climb the career ladder and smash the glass ceiling.
