Dev Technology Recognized as a 2021 Top Companies for Women Technologists Winner
Dev Technology has been named as the AnitaB.org 2021 Top Companies for Women Technologists winner in the small (<1,000) technical workforce size category. Top Companies for Women Technologists is a national benchmarking program that recognizes companies committed to cultivating workplaces where women technologists succeed and grow. This is the first year that Dev Technology has participated in the program, done so as part of the company’s greater commitment towards diversity, equity, and inclusion.
“I am thrilled to honor this year’s winners of Top Companies for Women Technologists and their ongoing work in advancing gender equality and inclusion,” said Brenda Darden Wilkerson, President and CEO, AnitaB.org. “While faced with a global pandemic and ‘she-cession,’ these companies took multiple steps to diversify and support their technical talent pool, helping to continue to make inclusive technology a reality.”
Now in its 11th year, this year the program analyzed data on representation, programs, and policies from 56 companies representing more than 141,000 women technologists. It is the only benchmarking program that looks specifically at technical employees and awards those making the most progress towards the equity of women. Top Companies also helps organizations identify areas where they can improve, and shows those organizations’ commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
“I am so excited that Dev Technology has been recognized for our efforts to create an inclusive work environment where women feel supported,” said Kendall Holbrook, Chief Executive Office. “I know that at times being a woman and a technologist can feel isolating, but it’s energizing to see organizations like AnitaB.org spotlighting women technologists and the organizations that support them.”
