Request for sexual favors and unwanted touching: A new survey finds women in tech still report high rates of harassment three years after the #metoo movement
A new survey of female tech founders and employees from networking group Women Who Tech found high rates of discrimination and harassment.
The surveyed distinguished between female startup founders and female employees of tech companies.
For female founders of color, the rate was even higher at 47%, and LGBTQ founders reported a rate of 65%.
Sexual harassment most frequently took the form of offensive jokes, "sexual slurs," and unwanted physical contact.
Of the women who reported harassment incidents to HR, 85% said the person they reported faced no repercussions.
