A Long Way To Go  

The gender pay gap in the technology industry is still very much alive and well.

In fact, nearly every U.S. state and region last year confirmed a negative pay differential, meaning that women are paid less than men in tech careers and in some cases, significantly less, according to a survey by Dice, a jobs website for technology professionals.

The Dice survey controlled for education, experience, location and occupation because the gender gap conversation is often attributed to the opportunity gap, or women‘s opportunity to hold higher-level, higher-paying jobs when compared to men.

While some states have smaller pay gaps than others, there‘s still plenty of room for improvement. Only two states, where average tech salaries for women in tech lagged by an average of more than $15,000, were at the bottom of the list.
