Women in tech still earn far less than men, study finds
For all the lip service the technology industry pays about valuing diversity and equality, it has struggled to close the gender pay gap, according to new research from Glassdoor, a website where current and former employees anonymously review companies and management.
The report, based on 534,000 anonymously shared employee salaries, found that the largest pay gap — adjusted for experience, education, position, location, and industry — existed among certain types of computer programmers, with men making on average 28.3% more than their female counterparts.
Among programmers, scientific and mainframe computer coders saw the greatest disparity. Significant gaps also existed in tech jobs such as video game artists (15.8%), information security specialists (14.7%) and front-end engineers (9.7%).
