Dice, a DHI Group brand, has released its Equality in Tech Report, presenting perspectives from technologists on racial and gender equality in tech and within their organizations.

The report also illustrates how important diversity, equity and inclusion efforts and values are to technologists, and how they believe their current organizations are performing in these areas.

Majority (57%) of respondents who identify as women say that they have experienced some form of gender discrimination, outnumbering the number of respondents who identify as men who said the same (10%), the report adds.

Black respondents (48%) were the most likely to have experienced racial discrimination, followed by Hispanic/Latino(a) respondents (30%), Asian/Pacific Islander respondents (25%), Asian Indian respondents (23%) and White respondents (9%).

Only 37% of technologists identifying as women said they were extremely or moderately impressed with their company’s response to gender diversity and inclusion movements; and 17% of technologists identifying as women expressed that they are not all impressed.

Also, 59% of those respondents who identify as women said that an employer’s reputation regarding diversity, equity and inclusion is extremely or moderately influential in their decision to work for that company; 42% of those respondents who identify as male said the same.

Majority (65%) of Black respondents thought that a reputation for diversity, equity, and inclusion was an important factor (extremely or moderately influential) in whether they would work for a particular company, followed by Asian Indian respondents (53%), Asian/Pacific Islander respondents (51%), Hispanic/Latino(a) respondents (50%) and White respondents (41%).

The report is based on data from Dice’s annual survey of more than 9,000 technologists across the United States.
