Storm4 finds 72% of women working in tech report being outnumbered by men and data shows that women are making up just 30% of CleanTech professionals

The majority of hiring strategies are weighted towards years of experience and most women simply don’t have as deep roots in the CleanTech industry.”

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 20, 2021 / -- With data from the National Science Foundation illustrating that more women than ever are earning STEM degrees, there are still concerning statistics surrounding gender inequality in tech.

Not only are fewer women choosing careers in technology than their male counterparts, females who do work in the sector report feeling outnumbered by men in meetings by a ratio of 2:1.

A huge 83% of women starting up tech businesses report having used their own personal capital, which equates to females being four times less likely to gain venture capital than men when founding a tech company of their own.

With figures suggesting that gender equal businesses can increase GDP by 35%, Storm4 explores some of the specific obstacles experienced by women in CleanTech, including male-dominated workplaces, gender-related discrimination, and a lack of representation in its latest report.
