Many companies have come under fire recently for their low employment of women in tech, but companies like Sephora are changing that.

Women make up an impressive 62% of Sephora’s tech employees, compared to only 23% of the top 75 Silicon Valley companies’ tech workers, according to an article in the Wall Street Journal. A Sephora employee who held various digital roles says of the first meeting she attended, “Everyone spoke, and felt comfortable offering opinions on anything from e-commerce to a shade of blush.”

The company focuses on empowering women and encouraging their growth, even women who might not have all the necessary skills- yet. “Even if a female candidate doesn’t have all the requirements for a technical job, we want that person to come in and show what they can do,” says the company’s VP of talent.
