What Sephora Knows About Women in Tech That Silicon Valley Doesn’t - WSJ🔒 www.wsj.com
Highlighting how Sephora has defied technology trends regarding gender diversity in technology. This reference to EEOC data is sobering:
Women hold 23% of roles in the technical ranks at the top 75 Silicon Valley companies, according to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. A report from the commission attributes the scarcity of women in those roles to inhospitable work cultures, isolation, a “firefighting” work style, long hours and a lack of advancement.

There is a lot of room to improve! Thanks @anna_picchetti for the link!Posted on October 10, 2017 →
