The following chart was created using employment data from four of the largest tech companies in Silicon Valley (namely Facebook, Google, Apple, and Yahoo). While these companies may be hiring more female employees, it appears as though many of them are not working in technical fields within the companies. With each employer, there is a significant difference in the percentages of male and female employees overall versus those in technical fields. It’s worth mentioning explicitly that the percentages of women in technical fields within these companies are at just 16%, 18%, 20%, and 15% respectively.
