Women in the workforce: Netflix leading by example.
Written by: Eu Genie
"Netflix appears as a top-notch diversity and inclusion student when looking at its neighbors in the Silicon Valley: indeed, women make 47% of Netflix total US workforce, and 47% of total leadership jobs when women only account respectively for 17% and 18% of Twitter and Uber total's workforce. Netflix said that these figures are naturally achieved thanks to their Culture Memo that reminds all employees of the company culture, a company where freedom and responsibility are key, and a "speak-up culture" that has become paramount for the company.
Whilst there are no official media releases on how Netflix is achieving these figures, one might think that events such as Women in Tech at Netflix or #SHERULESINDATA, as well as sponsorship of Women in Tech & Allies, give Netflix a fairer and more inclusive vibe than other companies. This inclusive culture also extends to the content Netflix is producing: 20% of Netflix US original films in 2019 were directed by women - almost twice the figure of the women directors in US 100 top-grossing movies in 2019."
