The tech industry is lagging behind in hiring more women than its male counterparts, with the percentage of female hires at tech companies falling in every industry category over the past three years.
And the gender gap is widening even further in the tech industry, where tech companies have long faced some of the highest unemployment rates in the world.
In 2016, according to a new report from the McKinsey Global Institute, only one in five full-time workers in tech were women.
While the percentage among full- and part-time women in tech was 6.5% in 2016, it fell to 4.9% in 2017.
That is a drop of more than 20 percentage points from the year before.
And it means that the gap in hiring rates for women has narrowed even further.
The report found that the percentage for women dropped from 20.1% to 16.9%, a reduction of more of more half of the overall drop in women to just 11.3% in the last three years, which is a statistically insignificant drop.
And as for the gender of the job applicants, the gender breakdown dropped from 29.7% to 27.5%, with the proportion of men and women falling equally.
Still, there was still a large percentage of women among the full-timers in the IT sector, with women making up 28.5%.
That number dropped to 23.4% for full- or part-timing women in 2016.
And, of course, it’s not just women who are having difficulty finding jobs.
In the financial services sector, the percentage dropped from 10.4 % to 9.3%, while for financial advisors, the share fell from 9.5 % to 8.7%.
There was also a significant drop for both men and men, dropping from 13.4 to 12.5.
The data shows that in some of those sectors, women are being hired more quickly than men.
For example, the IT and financial services sectors, which were both the most populous sectors in the U.S., saw a rise in the percentage women working in these industries.
In addition, the number of full-term and part time women in these sectors grew from 16.6% to 18.3%.
In addition to those sectors that were hiring more of the female workers, the overall percentage of full time women fell from 16% to 15.8% in those same industries.
And those numbers are likely to grow even more, with more companies in these fields hiring more and more of women as the number and size of IT jobs continues to increase.
Still more data from the report will be released in early 2018.
And McKinsey also noted that the IT industry continues to lag behind in the number that are women employed in its workforce.
For instance, the report found there were 2.7 million women employed by the technology sector, but only 9.2% of the workforce is female.
That figure was similar for the financial industry, which had 2.6 million female employees, but 6.2 percent of the total workforce was female.
The gender gap has been widening at the same time that more men are entering the tech workforce.
In a new study, McKinsey noted that a total of 13% of tech workers were men at the end of 2016, compared to 10% in 2008.
And while that may be a good sign for the tech companies, it will also put more pressure on the companies that hire women, particularly as the job market is expected to pick up again in the coming years.
“The gender gap will continue to widen and we are seeing that a significant number of these companies are looking at hiring more females in key positions and are not seeing the demand for these positions,” said Elizabeth Gresham, vice president of McKinsey’s Women and Workforce Group.
“In the coming months, we expect to see more changes in the workplace as women are more empowered to enter the workforce.”
A growing gender gap in tech and tech-related jobs also means that more of those women will have to go out of the country for work, said Amy Smith, senior vice president and general counsel of HR and Human Resources at TheWidener Group.
She said companies are still working to ensure that they are hiring women who have been in the technology industry for a long time and who are able to work remotely, while still maintaining a high level of quality.
The more women that are in tech, and the more of them that are on the technology team, the more they can bring to the table.
“They’re just going to be a lot more of a factor,” Smith said.
And that’s a good thing for both companies and for workers.
And she also said that it’s important to not be too concerned with the gender pay gap, as that is the result of a few factors.
For one, companies need to do a better job of providing pay equity to workers.
For another, they need to better train workers in how to use technology, and for that they
