Tech’s Shadow Workforce: How the Industry’s Reliance on Disproportionately Diverse, Segregated, and Underpaid Contingent Workers Exacerbates Inequality

Tech industry profits have ballooned during the pandemic. Yet the reality is that some who work in tech—contingent workers who perform critical roles for the companies— are locked out of the prosperity they create. Learn about TechEquity's original research into tech's reliance on a contract workforce that is more likely to be denied access to traditional pathways into the industry, and more diverse than the direct tech workforce. TechEquity Collaborative will share the corporate and policy changes necessary to ensure that the workers powering tech profits benefit from the industry’s growth.
