Gender Divide Persists in IT

46% of male tech professionals say their female colleagues are equally compensated for their work; 22% of women in IT agree.
Women have made great strides in IT over the decades, but much progress remains before the technology workplace sees true gender equality. Women and men in IT remain divided by their respective compensation levels and job challenges, and they have different priorities as to satisfaction at work.

Employers need to “take heed of these differing mindsets to better understand the unique priorities and challenges each of these groups face,” says Alisia Genzler, vice president of the Northeast Region of Technisource. “Failing to do so will affect employee satisfaction and work performance. A workforce will jump at the opportunity to work for an employer that recognizes and acknowledges what really matters to them.” More than 500 tech workers took part in the survey, which was conducted by Monster Worldwide.
