Did you know that more than 20% of tech employees are hesitant to speak about diversity? Despite a large majority of people agreeing that diversity and inclusion initiatives are highly important, some people are still very hesitant to speak about it as a topic, according to the TTC research. As part of its annual benchmarking report, TTC asked different tech sector employees about their perspectives on D&I, and found although more than 80% think D&I initiatives are necessary to improving diversity and inclusion in the sector, 22% are hesitant to bring up diversity issues, which rises to 32% among ethnic minorities.
