New analysis of the gender-pay gap in tech unearths some hidden inequities and some surprising steps forward.
A new report adds another layer to the increasingly complex issue of the gender-wage gap.
Comparably, a platform that provides anonymous data on compensation and insights into work culture did an analysis of the self-reported salaries of 10,000 workers in the tech industry.
Using algorithms to detect and remove false reports, Comparably’s researchers averaged the compensation data for all the jobs they have in tech, and broke it down by gender. They then broke the data out by education level, ethnicity, location, department, and age.
