SALT LAKE CITY, March 30, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Women Tech Council (WTC), a national organization focused on increasing the number of women in technology, today released the 2022 Shatter List as part of their celebration of Women's History Month. The list is the first to name and recognize the technology and innovation companies whose programs are leading and accelerating progress towards breaking the glass ceiling for women in tech.
"No single company has arrived at the finish line for promoting and engaging women in tech, but many are making important and impactful efforts that are creating progress throughout the economic pipeline," said Cydni Tetro, WTC president. "Recognizing this progress and elevating the best practices spurring it drives momentum and accelerates the path to change for the entire tech community."
Using public and private data, the Shatter List reviews and rates the development and successful implementation of company-wide practices that are moving organizations towards more inclusive cultures and advancing women in tech from entry-level positions to executive roles. The analysis centers in the four areas most critical to break the glass ceiling for women in tech:
- Executive engagement (active support from all leadership, especially the executive team and CEO)
- Company programming (proactively implement programs to support women and currently has women in leadership and executive roles)
- Community investment (active participation with the broader community to share and learn best practices for inclusion and culture)
- Women's or Diversity & Inclusion group (internal, formal programs that support women)
While no company's implementation in these areas is complete and many are innovating to continually evaluate and improve processes, a Shatter List ranking indicates a strong organizational commitment, active and meaningful programming, and impact for women in tech.
The 2022 Shatter List in alphabetical order is as follows:
- 1-800 Contacts
- Bamboo HR
- CHG Healthcare
- Dell Technologies
- Goldman Sachs
- Health Catalyst
- Intermountain Healthcare
- Lucid Software
