Is the tech industry sexist? A Sky News survey carried out with online magazine The Pool found that nearly four out of ten women said they had been denied an opportunity at work because of their gender.

More than one in three women said they believed that their organisation was biased towards hiring men for senior and technical roles. Technology Correspondent Tom Cheshire reports.

      The trouble is a lot of men who head up companies where born in the 1960’s
      and 1970’s so have a different attitude to women. Less Respect! Men born in
      the 90’s and 00’s have a completely different mindset.

      they are pussies, (the men from the 90’s and 00’s) they will employ a woman
      even if she was way down the list of brains for the job, just not to get
      labelled sexist.

      +jock stew that’s not what I’ve seen in the business rates sector and trust
      me it’s cut throats at the moment. We sack probably 10% more men than
      women! Women want that commission very badly. In 10 years time the old
      timers will be gone and things will change even more rapidly. Trust me….

    Women need to set-up more companies and create more pathways for promotion
    for its female employees. As we know women have since 1998 done better in
    school than men and thus should therefore build more profitable successful

    Who cares? If they want more women in the field, find women that actually
    want to work in that field.
