On Behalf of | Mar 21, 2022 | Sexual Harassment

If you are a woman who works in technology, there is a high chance you have either experienced sexual harassment yourself or know a colleague who has. While it happens in any industry, tech companies have a particularly bad reputation.

That reputation comes not only due to the frequency with which harassment happens but also from various big-name employers’ attempts to hush it up.

If you can’t change the culture, you might consider starting your own company. Yet a report by Women Who Tech found that female tech founders are also subjected to harassment.
Here are some notable statistics:

  • 72% of female tech employees reported sexual harassment by a colleague.”
  • 40% of female tech founders reported sexual harassment by an investor.
  • 42% of female tech employees reported sexual harassment by a supervisor.
