Recent research by the CMI suggests that whilst younger women are paid roughly the same as men, the gender pay gap widens with age with women over 40 earning 34% less than their male counterparts.
techUK have run an annual survey over the past few years with a view to collating data on the pay and employment practices within the technology industry specifically. The aim is to build a picture of how the technology industry fares against industry as a whole and to understand what progress is being made in this area. They are running the survey again this year and a link to the survey can be found here. In order for techUK to gain as comprehensive a data set as possible, they would like as many people to complete the survey as possible. So please fill it in yourself and forward the link on to other women in technology within your own network.
The deadline for completion of the survey is Friday 7th November. The data will then be analysed and the findings published before the end of the year.
