Austin, TX  TrustRadius, the most trusted customer review platform for business technology, celebrates the publication of the first annual People of Color in Tech Report. The report presents crucial new data on representation, leadership, funding, and unconscious bias in the tech industry, and is designed to help create a more equitable future.

1,207 tech professionals participated in the first annual People of Color in Tech survey. 53% identified as people of color. With over 25 brand new statistics, detailed analysis, and exclusive interviews with tech leaders, the People of Color in Tech Report help address the lack of research on marginalized populations in the tech industry.

“This report is deeply personal to me,” says TrustRadius Founder and CEO Vinay Bhagat. “I’m a first-generation immigrant, and a person of color (of Indian descent). I am, however, privileged. I haven’t faced the barriers Black and Latine people experience in the U.S. As a CEO, recent events and this report have caused me to evaluate my own company and make crucial changes. This report clearly demonstrates that tech companies need to do more to drive diversity. It also demonstrates that there is very real prejudice and unconscious bias that people of color face in the workplace.
