Despite recent pushes for gender pay equality, issues persist in the tech industry. These gender pay gaps between men’s and women’s salaries exist even when factors, including experience, role, education and location are controlled for. Despite the past and continued contributions that women make in technology, the tech industry isn’t leading in this particular topic. In short, there is much work to be done.
To help raise awareness about the gender pay gap and drive the discussion about salary equality, Dice analyzed three years’ worth of salary data (along with supplemental panel and market data) to discover the pay differences between men and women in technology. By putting real numbers on display, we can illuminate compensation inequality that transcends regions, states and occupations. These gaps are quite large; in some states, for instance, the pay differential between men and women exceeds $15,000.
Beyond the recently (published) Gender Pay Gap in Tech report, Dice is also hosting a webinar on Wednesday, March 25th at 1 pm Mountain Time to dig even deeper into the numbers and offer more perspective to the issue.
The webinar will feature two panelist: Masha Zvereva and Sabrina Baker.
