New Orleans is Now the #5 City for Women in Tech

For the last three years, the finance technology company SmartAsset has been releasing reports on the best cities for women working in tech.

New Orleans is now the #5 city for women in tech, topped only by Washington, D.C., Kansas City, Missouri, Baltimore and Indianapolis.

“To find the best cities for women in tech, we pulled data on men and women in computer and mathematical occupations,” shared SmartAsset. “We looked at 59 of the largest U.S. cities in which there are enough tech workers to provide statistically reliable data from the Census Bureau.”

SmartAsset also found that women and men in those occupations earn about the same amount of money, and women fill approximately 35 percent of those positions.

Tech jobs in New Orleans have grown roughly 32 percent between 2011 and 2015, the largest tech employment growth in any city besides Mesa, Arizona, with numbers about equivalent to the Big Easy.
