Women in tech: share your experiences

A Google software engineer has been reportedly fired for a memo he wrote criticising the company’s efforts to improve its record on diversity.

The 10-page “manifesto” argues the lack of women in positions of leadership in tech is down to innate “differences” between men and women.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai has since said that the memo is “contrary to our basic values”.

We want to hear from women who work in the tech industry in the context of this story. What is the culture like? Have you encountered people who hold opinions similar to those expressed in the controversial memo?

Have you experienced difficulties or any specific incidents in your career due to prejudice against your gender? Did you leave the industry due to it? Do you think women are put off studying for tech related jobs in the first place?
