It’s not a secret: There are fewer women in tech than there are men.
So, let’s run some numbers.
Based on estimates from Q, an IT and Digital talent firm based in Los Angeles that specializes in tech talent in Southern California:
- Out of every 100 software developers/engineers in Los Angeles, approximately 10-12 are female.
- In 2011, only 17% of job placements (all for positions in technology in L.A.) were women.
- Only 7% of developers hired through Q were women . . .
