The number of women working in tech has risen by an astonishing 3.7 million in the past year, according to a new report from CareerBuilder, which tracks job postings and job openings.
But women are still far behind men at the top positions.
“We think women are struggling to find and retain leadership positions,” said Lisa Blumberg, co-founder and CEO of CareerBuilder.
“As women are making their way up the ladder in the workplace, they’re also seeing that women don’t get paid well, and it’s harder for them to negotiate salary increases and raise their level of education.”
The study found that women who had worked in the tech industry since 2010 made 78% more than men.
Blumbs data also showed that women are starting companies at a younger age than their male counterparts, and have more options for career advancement.
They are also more likely to leave the tech sector after graduation.
“They’re not being held back by the stereotypes that women do not succeed,” said Blumber.
“There are still plenty of women in tech who are successful, but we have a lot more to go.”
According to CareerBuilder’s figures, women make up just 2.6% of the total tech workforce, but that’s down from 2.7% in 2015.
The figures don’t include all women who work in the field of technology.
CareerBuilder estimates that women make as much as men in some fields, including sales, marketing and technology.
But those numbers are skewed by the fact that women in those industries are more likely than men to be employed full time.
Blums research also found that the gap in pay for women is wider in other professions, including finance, health care and manufacturing.
The average salary for a female engineer is $42,000, compared to $49,000 for a male engineer, according the report.
And the gender pay gap is wider than it was 10 years ago, with women making 77% of what men made in 2015, compared with 81% in 2012.
Blummings research also suggests that the growing gap in salaries between men and women is a result of a shift in technology, with technology companies moving toward a more collaborative and collaborative approach to business.
“Technology companies are more collaborative than they’ve ever been,” Blumbers said.
“It’s really, really important that people are working together to make these businesses work.
They’re also getting more hands-on, so there are more people at the table.”
CareerBuilder also found evidence that women may be leaving the tech workforce in larger numbers than previously thought.
The number and size of women leaving tech is growing at an alarming rate.
It’s up by an alarming 2.2 million since 2010, Blumberger said.
And Blumbers research also showed a dramatic increase in the number of new female hires.
“Women are actually working more hours than men,” she said.
This trend is expected to continue, with the number and amount of women on the job increasing.
“If you look at the trend, it’s really starting to accelerate,” Blums said.
But Blumbi’s data also shows that women’s wages are still much higher than men’s, and that a lot of the pay disparities aren’t about gender, but about age.
Blubs wage gap is even larger in certain fields, like finance.
A typical woman working in finance earns $70,000 annually, but a typical man working in that field earns $84,000.
Blumi says this means that it’s “harder for a woman to get into finance” than a man, especially when it comes to earning higher salaries.
Bluhbs data shows that female finance employees have the highest average starting salaries of any career.
And in tech, the wage gap widens even more.
“You’re talking about a difference of $50,000 or more for a typical female versus a typical male,” Blumi said.
BlUMBS data also found the median pay for female engineers is just shy of $60,000 a year.
Blubbs data does not include any women who have started a company after graduation, Blumbber said.
It also doesn’t include women who are part-time, who often work as part-timers or who are working part-pay.
Blunber says that these women have an “advantage” in the workforce, because they are not required to be paid overtime.
And she says the tech world needs to be more sensitive to the needs of women, especially the ones who are the most vulnerable in the industry.
“The pay gap has always been there, but it’s not as clearcut as it is now,” Blunberg said.
She believes that the pay gap can be narrowed, but not eliminated, by increasing the number, types and levels of mentorship that women receive.
Bluns report also found one of the biggest problems with women in the technology industry is that they are too often overlooked.
“Men have the ability to talk to women and ask them to work
