0 24


In a new survey of tech industry employees, 37 percent said they have experienced sexism at work.

Earlier this month, Blind (an “anonymous workplace social network” used by many big technology companies) released a report about sexism in the tech industry. The data came from a survey that Blind administered through its network to thousands of employees across the industry.

The survey found that 37 percent of respondents had experienced or witnessed sexism at work. Respondents included employees across various technology companies (including Microsoft, Intel, Adobe, Oracle, Amazon, Google, Facebook, eBay, Apple, and Uber).

Here’s what you need to know about the survey and how its results stack up to other industries.

How Was the Survey Conducted?

The survey asked users to answer “True” or “False” to one statement: I have witnessed or experienced sexism at my current company.

Respondents employed at Google reported the lowest rates of sexism, at 25.85 percent. At Intel, 59.38 percent of employees reported that they had witnessed or experienced sexism. According to the report, this was the highest response rate of “True” among all of the companies that had at least 100 employee responses.
