About the Report

Welcome to Dice’s Equality in Tech Report, now in its second year. The report presents perspectives from technologists on racial and gender equality in the tech world and within our organizations. Separated into distinct sections focusing on race and gender, it also includes data on technologist perception of discrimination and equality in their roles and careers, the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion efforts and values to technologists, and how technologists believe their current organizations are performing in these areas.

Acknowledging that gender and racial identifications exist well beyond what is presented in this report, certain demographics that we collected data for are not featured due to small sample sizes. These include Non-binary and Other in gender, as well as Native American/Alaskan Native and Other in race. We’re featuring only the data that is truly statistically conclusive, as that ensures that the important information included here will not be overshadowed in any way. We hope to be able to extend the represented demographics in future iterations of this report.
