The Survey regarding Persistent Sexism and Gender Bias in Tech was discussed.

The survey underscores the importance of addressing gender inequality and sexism in the tech industry. While there have been positive developments, the persistence of challenges necessitates sustained efforts for a more inclusive and equitable tech sector. The findings serve as a call to action for companies and women in the industry to collaborate in bringing about positive change.
