Black professionals in tech industry being ‘left behind’ due to persistent racial inequalities

According to recent research from the non-profit Colorintech and Meta, large and persistent racial inequities continue, with expanding gaps between what organizations say and what they do to promote inclusion.

Nearly a quarter (30%) of those polled stated that they can’t – and don’t want to – be their true selves at work, and that they feel compelled to be inauthentic for fear of not progressing, and that a façade of conformity must override their personal values, views, and attributes in order to fit in with organizational ones.
