SAN DIEGO, Jan. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Crowd Hub in San Diego, California, is a mission-based organization and the world leader in digital and mobile platforms for the non-profit and media market. But now they’re making news for leading in a new and exciting way – women building, creating, and designing technology.
Diversity is crucial to the tech industry, as it can help create products that take all people into consideration. A report from 2020 found that diverse companies perform better than those without a focus on diversity and inclusion for hire or retention rates, among other things.
A recent study by McKinsey & Company showed how having an environment full of different races and genders promotes creativity in teams, leading them to be more innovative about finding new solutions. It’s a shame that despite what all women have achieved, they remain underrepresented in technology roles.
Gender discrimination is still a serious problem in America. The fields of tech and development are no exception. They’ve traditionally been male-dominated. Women have been held back, but companies have also been short-changing themselves. Sabrina Geremia of Google said, "If only dudes are developing software, they are solving problems only dudes have." 
Jaimie Green reported this sad commentary in a Forbes article dated June 8, 2021. "The five most powerful tech companies globally (Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft) average a workforce of only 34.4% women. Women are highly underrepresented in STEM jobs due in part to what’s referred to as ‘the broken rung.’ That refers to the substantial barrier between women and promotions to manager-level positions, putting them at an instant disadvantage."
Crowd Hub Apps and Solutions Managing Director Chris Mefford set out to change that. "We haven’t necessarily approached hiring and promoting as a discrimination problem to be solved. Rather we chose to recognize talent and the unique God-given gifts each leader brings to the table and move forward with whomever better positions us as a company to win, regardless of gender. The women of Crowd Hub create innovative results for our clients, helping us connect people in a meaningful way worldwide. I also don’t think it’s an accident that much of the work we do is for clients who are being led by a woman as well.
While it’s true that only 18 percent of computer science graduates in America are women, Crowd Hub is seeking to change perspectives.
