Indeed announced it’s partnering with three review sites that focus on inclusiveness in the workplace. By adding reviews from Fairygodboss, InHerSight and Comparably to their company pages, Indeed aims to provide more information to those interested in evaluating the diversity and inclusiveness of employers.

“By incorporating more insight and ratings from women, we will boost transparency and accountability on this issue, while providing a resource for employers interested in creating more diverse workplaces. We also intend to empower job seekers to find a workplace that understands and supports their needs.”

Furthermore, Indeed conducted a study of 1,000 women in tech to get insights into their needs and wants when considering a job – and what is and isn’t working for them at their employers.

While we’re on the topic, Wired has an interesting article about why there are few women in tech, publishing findings from Alison Wynn, a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University’s Clayman Institute for Gender Research, and Stanford sociology professor Shelley Correll.

“In 2012 and 2013, researchers attended 84 introductory sessions held by 66 companies at an elite West Coast university. (They never explicitly name Stanford, but …) Roughly a quarter of attendees at these one-hour sessions were women, on average. The researchers documented an unwelcoming environment for these women, including sexist jokes and imagery, geeky references, a competitive environment, and an absence of women engineers—all of which intimidated or alienated female recruits. “We hear from companies there’s a pipeline problem, that there just aren’t enough people applying for jobs. This is one area where they are able to influence that,” Wynn says. “They just don’t.”
