Sacramento Ranks 2nd in Nation for Diversity in Tech Workforce, Women Leading the Way
The City Also Tops the List for Women in Tech
The Greater Sacramento Economic Council (GSEC) announced that the city of Sacramento has been ranked second in the nation for diversity in its tech workforce. The findings come from a 2022 report on tech diversity from technology firm BeyondHQ, which previously ranked Sacramento third.
Most notably, the report found that Sacramento has the highest female participation of any city in its tech workforce at 29.4%. When looking specifically at the highly-valued skills and occupations of software development and systems design and engineering in Sacramento, women make up 22% of the tech workforce. Although Sacramento’s numbers stand out, women in tech are highly underrepresented in markets across the U.S.
