According to a recent study by Dice, discrimination continues to be a big problem in tech. Tech professionals reported they’ve experienced or witnessed discrimination, with the highest reported being ageism. 29% of respondents reported age discrimination in the workplace, followed by gender (21%), political affiliation (11%) and sexual orientation (6%).
In the past, we’ve discussed the vast benefits of diversity within tech teams – including gender and racial diversity. Various studies indicate that companies with good diversity perform better than companies that are less diverse. However, a conversation that seems to still be needed is the importance of multi-generational teams.
