Across the technology industry, there has been a lack of diversity, equity and inclusion. According to the “Diversity in Tech: 2021 U.S. Report” from Wiley Edge, a company that trains technology workers, 68% of business leaders surveyed feel there is a lack of diversity in their tech workforces, and 51% said they struggle to recruit diverse, entry-level tech talent.

Among the 18-to-28-year-old professionals surveyed, 68% said they felt uncomfortable in their technology jobs because of their gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic background or neurodevelopmental condition. Within that age bracket, 39% of survey respondents said they were never given any information about technology careers in high school or college.
