It is no secret that there is a gender imbalance within the technology sector.
The main issue remains the disparity between the number of men and women in technology-related jobs. The difference in pay has also been highlighted time and again, with a survey earlier this year revealing that women earn up to 28 per cent less than their male counterparts in the UK for tech-related occupations.
The survey by Emolument.com found that the biggest pay gap is within small companies (less than 10 employees) with women paid 28 per cent less than men doing the same roles. In SMEs the pay gap was between 19-20 per cent highlighting the fact that this is an issue which runs throughout the industry.
