Companies agree—diversity benefits the tech industry—but Atomico’s latest State of European Tech 2018 report reveals stark gender imbalances in the region. This year marks the first time that Atomico has included diversity metrics in its annual assessment, which examines key indicators such as talent movement, investment trends, and new regulations.
The firm partnered with Quid, a research platform it invests in, to assess how the media covers diversity in tech compared with other industry-relevant topics like blockchain or artificial intelligence. Quid draws connections across massive amounts of written content to surface patterns and larger narrative themes. The platform analyzed thousands of articles on the European tech industry from the past year to identify the specific issues driving coverage and social engagement, including discrimination and harassment of female employees, the lack of pay equity, and gender disparities when it comes to fundraising.
