The Shatter List showcases technology companies that are creating and enacting practices and cultures that remove the glass ceiling. The Shatter List is compiled by scoring companies on four factors critical to building inclusive cultures with meaningful measures that help women break and surpass the glass ceiling in technology.
- Executive engagement (active support from the CEO, executive team and all leadership)
- Company programming (currently has women in leadership executive positions and proactively implements programs to support women in technology)
- Community investment (active participation with the broader community to learn from and share best practices regarding culture and inclusion)
- Women’s or D&I group (formal programs to support women internally)
While no company’s implementation in these areas is complete and many are innovating to continually evaluate and improve processes, a Shatter List ranking indicates a strong organizational commitment, active and meaningful programming, and impact for women in tech.

This year’s Shatter List comes in the midst of the first female recession brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. By moving beyond HR and hiring measures, the list reviews and rates the development and successful implementation of company-wide practices to create inclusive cultures where women can contribute and succeed. Recognizing these measures accelerates their spread throughout technology communities, and supports the measures making the greatest impact for women.
“While the vaccine will help immunize us against COVID-19, there is no immunization against this recession,” said Cydni Tetro, president of WTC. “Just like these companies, leaders and professionals at every level need to be in action for women by creating the leadership styles, working environments and company policies that give women the support to excel, and consequently propel the growth of our entire technology ecosystem.”
The 2021 Shatter List was compiled using data from more than 10 different sources that demonstrated work and impact in the four areas most critical to breaking the glass ceiling for women in tech. Each factor relates to demonstrable and visible programming, activities and commitment that advance women in tech from entry level positions to executive roles.

"Shattering technology's glass ceiling requires companies to invest more and be actively engaged in creating cultures and activities that expect and demand inclusivity from top to bottom. By highlighting the companies and practices that are actively championing women and are making strides to change the industry's landscape and culture, this list accelerates the technology sector's journey to increase the number of women in technology and break our own glass ceiling."
