Women Tech Council (WTC), a national organization focused on increasing the number of women in technology, today celebrated Women’s History Month by releasing the 2023 Shatter List. Now in its seventh year, the list is the first to identify and recognize the technology and innovation companies with programs that are accelerating progress towards breaking the glass ceiling for women in tech.

“Because women comprise half of the workforce but only a quarter of the technology workforce, we need to accelerate progress for women in tech and create more momentum towards breaking the glass ceiling,” said WTC President Cydni Tetro. “Recognizing the programs and measures that are creating impact and the companies enacting them helps educate and inspire other organizations, and creates lift and momentum for the entire technology community.”

The Shatter List reviews and evaluates the development and company-wide implementation of practices that advance women in tech from entry level roles to executive positions, and create more inclusive cultures. The analysis centers on the four areas most critical to breaking the glass ceiling for women in tech:

— Executive engagement (active support from all leadership, especially the CEO and executive team)
— Company programming (proactive implementation of programs that support women and current women in leadership and executive roles)
— Community investment (active participation with the broader community to learn and share best practices for culture and inclusion)

  • Women’s or Diversity & Inclusion group (formal, internal programs that support women)

While no single company or leader’s implementation in these areas is complete, and many are continually evaluating and innovating to improve processes, a ranking on The Shatter List indicates a meaningful organizational commitment, active and targeted programming, and impact for women in technology.
