Women remain underrepresented in Israel's high-technology industry, according to a report by Power in Diversity, a joint venture of Israeli tech startups and investors.

Women make up an estimated 34% of the high-tech workforce, a 0.4% increase over last year, according to the group's latest annual report. Women gained 6% in management roles from 2021 to hold 24% of such positions. The number of Arab and ultra-Orthodox startup workers in tech sectors are even lower than those of women, the report says.

"Especially these days, the discourse on inclusion, equality, and acceptance should serve as a milestone in the conduct of all of us, especially companies in the high-tech industry," says Power in Diversity CEO Shahar Silis. "That is a source of innovation and progress."
