Women Are Vastly Underrepresented in Silicon Valley Tech Jobs (Just 10% at Twitter)

Women Are Vastly Underrepresented in Silicon Valley Tech Jobs (Just 10% at Twitter)

Twitter recently unveiled its latest diversity statistics, which revealed that the company has a 70-30 split of men to women, with that ratio moving to 50-50 in non-technical roles.

But what about tech jobs? Like at many other companies in Silicon Valley, women remain vastly underrepresented in this field, with just one in 10 occupying tech positions at Twitter.

That rates the company worst amongst other giants in its space, with Facebook (15 percent women in tech jobs), Yahoo (15 percent), LinekdIn (17 percent), Google (17 percent) and Apple (20 percent) all doing better than Twitter in this split.
