which techology company has highest number of woman managers

technology companies and women managers

Tech brands with the highest number of woman managers  

Pinterest, Linked, Yahoo are the top tech companies with the higher number of women managers with 40,39 and 37% respectively 
While there is no evidence or research to show that productivity or efficiency is gender dependent nor any study to show why companies needs to hire more woman than men or vice versa.  So what makes them so attractive to tom tom !! For these global technology giants gender diversity is a big statement in itself .It makes them sound very politically correct and helps them to don the leadership role in the tech industry by trying to showcase gender diversity. This is a great way to hire new woman recruits who are at times seen not as ambitious or career driven as men… What is left unsaid is the role of economics in gender diversity . Do compensation levels play a role in gender divide ?

eBay, Apple, and HP have the most women in leadership role in tech companies

"gender diversities in leadership positions in tech companies"

Gender diversity in  leadership  Positions  in Technology companies 

The chart published by Gigacom above shows the gender diversity in top technology companies when it comes to leadership. Some companies count leadership roles as being only vice presidents, others count as broad a definition as “officials and managers. eBay, Apple, and HP have the most women in leadership roles, although at 28 percent they’re still far from equally weighted.
