We are excited to finally announce the release of Hugo’s first white paper on gender and voice equity in the workplace! Foundational Approaches to Gender Equity in Tech is based on industry studies along with our own survey in collaboration with AWIP (Advancing Women in Product). The results have been incorporated into this white paper, which we are releasing today in partnership with Atlassian, BlueJeans, and Freshworks.

Understanding the state of women in tech today helps us formulate the best way to effect change for tomorrow.
This white paper will discuss the current state of women in tech including:
