New report finds Canadian technology companies lagging in terms of female leadership

A new report says just five per cent of Canadian technology companies have a female founder and a similar fraction have a woman as CEO, suggesting the industry’s gender diversity is lagging other sectors.

The study, co-authored by PwC, the MaRS Discovery district and non-profit MoveTheDial, also indicates that women comprise 13 per cent of the average Canadian tech company’s executive team while 53 per cent of firms do not have any female executives.
