In 2019, F4 launched the EQUALITY FOR ALL initiative aligning to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #10.3. We began championing and focusing efforts towards equal opportunity for all by forging partnerships with business and policy leaders, advocating eliminating discriminatory laws, policies and practices and promoting appropriate legislation, policies, and action to make equal opportunity for all a reality.
The mission for the Tech Industry's Diversity Hiring Practice research is to provide insight into the discrimination factors impeding efforts to build a culture of equality and a diverse workforce.
The report provides comprehensive insights into the hiring practices of the tech industry and the discrimination faced by candidates seeking jobs at tech companies.
The Tech Industry's Diversity Hiring Practices research report analyzes the candidates' inputs to assess their perspectives and experiences across job functions, hiring managers and interviewers during the interview process.
Most candidates citing ageism are above 40. Ageism affects women sooner than men, as women reported age discrimination at age 40, while it became prevalent with men at age 50.
