Gender barriers in technology are a very real problem with counter-productive consequences. The best workaround for this is to truly understand women developers — the challenges they face, the opportunities they seek, and the careers they aspire to build. With a community of more than 2 million developers across the world, HackerEarth does its best to understand issues which could directly impact the progress of technologists. We surveyed over 1000 women holding technology positions in organizations across 35 countries and 5 continents to better understand their contribution to technology and these are a few facts we unearthed: ✓ No matter what the size of the organization, women formed a minority in tech teams - 31.4% of women claimed they were part of tech teams with only 0% to 10% of women technologists. ✓ The number of women in senior tech roles is alarmingly skewed - only a meager 2% of the women surveyed held senior leadership roles. ✓ The possibility of attrition among women in tech roles is high with almost 53% of women actively seeking a new role and almost 51% quoting their average tenure across all employers to be less than two years. ✓Gender inequality is prevalent among workplaces with 34% of women citing unequal evaluation and reviews as the main reason. ✓Advertisements for tech roles happen to have more masculine wording with 50% of the respondents agreeing that gendered wording in job advertisements for technical roles exists. ✓But the outlook is not so bleak with almost 81% agreeing they felt their opinions were valued and better growth opportunities (61%) and a positive work-life balance (53%) would encourage them to continue with their current organizations.
