Philly Ranked 3rd in the Nation for Women in Tech
Shout out to Philly! Most importantly, shout out to the women of Philly! It was just announced that Philadelphia has been named the 3rd best city in the nation for women working in tech!
This study was conducted by the fintech firm SmartAsset, and here is what they took into consideration when analyzing this study: the gender pay gap, women’s income after housing, women as a percent of the tech workforce and the percent change in tech jobs. And in most of these categories, Philadelphia ranked pretty high.
When it comes to representation in the tech workplace locally, women fill 30.2 percent of the tech jobs in Philly. I know that might not seem like a lot, but in reality it is much larger than the national average which is 25.8 percent.
