Glassdoor diversity report: only 25% of technicians are women

Glassdoor, the company that informs about jobs, salaries and how employees rate their employers says that there has been some positive development when it comes to the company’s own diversity and inclusion but that there is still much to be done. Globally, the company employs 53% men and 46% women but when it comes to tech jobs it looks worse – 74% are men and 25% are women.

Glassdoor employs nearly 700 employees worldwide. Among non-tech jobs, 59% are women and 41% are men.

“Bringing radical transparency to the workplace in order to drive change in society first begins with driving change at Glassdoor itself. While I’m pleased with how we’ve made progress in some areas over the past year to create more diversity and inclusion at Glassdoor, we still have a long way to go and remain committed to reaching our goals,” said CEO Christian Sutherland-Wong when presenting the company’s annual report on diversity and inclusion.

Among the company’s goals for 2025 are

  • Women in tech roles are currently at 25%. Goals is at least 33%.
  • Women in leadership roles (director+) are currently at 36%. Goal is at least 50%.
  • Black employee representation is currently at 5%. That should be at least 8%.
  • Latinx employee representation is currently at 4%. Goal is at least 10%.

The company said that a 2021 pay equity analysis found no adjusted pay gap by gender or race/ethnicity when examining the compensation of Glassdoor’s U.S.-based employees.

No gender pay gap

“This is the sixth consecutive year Glassdoor found no statistically significant adjusted gaps by gender. This is also the third year pay was analyzed by race/ethnicity and, similarly, no statistically significant adjusted pay gaps were found.”

Some of the initiatives planned include launching a mentorship and sponsorship program to create and maintain connectivity in the hybrid working environment (with many employees choosing to work remotely some or all of the time).

The company plans to launch a talent program focused on equity and designed to support career progression for underrepresented groups.
