Wall Street outpaces Silicon Valley on gender equality

J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon today said in a CNBC interview that he believes that Wall Street is ahead of Silicon Valley in terms of gender equality. And he's right, based on an Axios analysis of corporate diversity reports for a selection of the country's largest banks and technology companies.

Headline numbers: America's top banks have higher percentages of female employees than do technology companies, by a 48.4% to 33.2% margin.

Still not much to brag about: Both industries still feature few women in leadership positions, with Wall Street eking out a meager 25.5% to 24.8% "win" over tech.
