The technology market is dominated by men, and this is nothing new for anyone. No wonder Apple is very focused on diversity.
Even though white men dominate the industry's rankings (including at Apple), the company is working hard to do this and, in 2014, hired 11,000 women. But it is not enough to invest in diversity and to have a work environment with unequal, sexist treatment.
Speaking of the technology sector, men dominate 82% of the sector's leadership positions. The result? A recent survey of women in leadership positions revealed that 60% have already suffered from work-related sexual proposals; of these, 65% reported having received such proposals from their bosses (senior positions); even more alarming: 90% of women reported having witnessed sexist behavior either within the company or at congresses.
Enter the Fairygodboss, a repository of company evaluations made by women in the labor market. Since February, when the information on these rankings began to be released, Apple has been very well evaluated in all rankings (whether they are focused on the market and technology or on the professional in general). They are fed new information / data every day, according to the participation of new respondents.
Check it out below:
Companies in which women are happiest (scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest score)
Companies where women think they are treated fairly
Companies which women would recommend to other women
Undoubtedly, this should be a source of great pride within Apple. 👩
