Despite the efforts of various stakeholders and organizations in the technology industry, is enough really being done to break the glass ceiling and create gender equality? Navisite’s research shows that this is not the case as women continue to struggle with how they are treated, compensated and valued in their own workplace. According to the latest report, 94% of women in technology ultimately believe they are held to a higher standard than their male counterparts.

A recent Navisite survey of women in technology found that not only are women held to a higher standard than their male counterparts, but they are also asked to perform most of the administrative duties. In fact, 75% say they or their female colleagues are consistently asked to perform more administrative tasks compared to their male colleagues, including requesting to send meeting invitations, reserve meeting rooms or prepare drinks. In addition, 86% of women say they are accused of being too emotional, or described using similar gender-laden words in the workplace.
