Women in engineering are clearly not represented more than enough: they amounted to somewhere concerning 2% and 5% of all programmers a ten years in the past, and about 10% now. At Purism, we pleasure ourselves on becoming gender assorted, in addition to remaining racially and geographically diverse. Our total workforce is comprised of 20+% ladies (with ladies accounting for 37+% of our board, and 33+% of Purism executives) and we continue on to work to enhance that share. Range is an asset, and results in risk-free place of work environments. If you want a safe and sound place of work environment that respects variety, we are choosing.
