A survey by business management consulting firm New View Strategies found 38% of women in the technology sector intend to quit in the next two years, driven by the pandemic and gender inequality.

More than a quarter (27%) of 1,000 survey respondents said they were now less positive about their careers than they were before the pandemic, and more than half (52%) said their workload had grown since COVID-19 started.

Moreover, 43% perceive a gender pay gap at their workplace, and 38% reported having experienced gender bias.

Respondents cited few advancement opportunities, female role models, or mentorship as among the greatest challenges for women in technology.
