"It is disappointing to see Qualcomm is still denying the existence of gender discrimination within their organization, despite mounting evidence that points to the contrary," Shegerian says. "It is our hope that the $19.5 million settlement will prove to those in charge just how serious this issue is and how badly change is needed."
"Approximately 3,300 women were affected in this case, but unfortunately, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to gender discrimination," Shegerian comments. "Qualcomm is not the first organization to be accused of discrimination, but hopefully it will be the last."
