2022 WOMEN IN TECH REPORT

A GLOBAL STUDY OF WOMEN WORKING IN TECHNOLOGY

The Skillsoft Women in Tech Report shares the findings of an in-depth survey of women’s experiences at all stages of their careers, across geographies and industries.

The goal of this research is to uncover the disparities women face in tech roles, offering data, insight, and guidance to help make change a reality. This report provides a clear picture of the current status of women in tech-related jobs, what’s important to them, and what they need from their employers to thrive.

Insights from 1,300+ women in tech

THERE IS A GENDER IMBALANCE AT WORK

The annual Women in Tech survey asks professionals about their roles, challenges, access to opportunities, job satisfaction, and equality in the workforce. This report compiles their insights and provides organizations with solutions to encourage women and promote meaningful diversity, equity, and inclusion.

INCREASING GENDER IMBALANCE

35% of women in tech report that men outnumber them at ratios of four-to-one or greater within their organizations. This percentage has increased by 23 percentage points since last year.

LACK OF EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES

45% of women surveyed feel that they are not given equal opportunities. Most think employers should do more to support women’s professional development, provide more mentoring or coaching at work, and foster an equitable work culture.

LIKELY TO SWITCH ROLES

Nearly 40% are likely to switch job roles in the year ahead. Many answered that compensation, a lack of equity in opportunities, and ineffective leadership have led them to consider making a switch.

WOMEN IN TECH ARE STILL STUCK UNDER A GLASS CEILING

Survey findings show most women in tech around the world still report a lack of equity in pay and a lack of equity in opportunities as main challenges. When asked what companies could do to support and encourage them, guaranteed equitable pay and an equitable work culture were among the top answers.
