According to the report, 38% of women surveyed say men are assumed to be more capable than women at their workplace. Furthermore, 38% also said they plan to leave their tech jobs altogether in the next two years and that 46% say their organizations do not actively promote gender equality in hiring and culture.

One in ten women have experienced gender-based harassment via Slack or email. The survey also found that 70% of women do not feel comfortable having their cameras on during video calls, and almost half (48%) are not aware whether their company has a remote work harassment policy.

Additional issues reported by women include access to tools for upward mobility, lack of advancement opportunities, lack of female role models, and lack of mentorship and training resources.
