The problem. Silicon Valley is notorious for innovation, boundary-breaking—and discrimination. Another study found little to no progress for men and women of color in cracking the glass ceiling over the last decade. According to one survey of women in the technology industry:
• 84% have been told they’re too aggressive.
• 59% feel they haven’t had the same opportunities as men.
• 87% have received demeaning comments from male colleagues.
The impact. This hostile environment translates to women and people of color getting hired less often, paid less, promoted more slowly, and given opportunities less often than they deserve.
The solution. At Outten & Golden, we’re committed to stopping discrimination and harassment using powerful laws that hold companies accountable. Under these laws, when a company pays women and people of color less than their peers for doing the same job, or discriminates against women by under-hiring or under-promoting them, that company must pay for that harm.
Our attorneys have deep experience fighting for women and people of color to get compensation and fair treatment. We have brought class action civil rights cases against some of the world’s largest employers, taking on Uber, Facebook, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, Abercrombie & Fitch, and many more.
