Student: Anna Motina

Supervisor: Irina V. Zoroastrova

Faculty: Faculty of Economics

Educational Programme: Economics (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2020

This paper examines the dynamics of the workforce in the information technology sphere and assesses the influence of gender on wage difference and innovation level of companies. Thinking of today’s lack of professionals in the industry, the diversity of talents and gender gap related questions were prioritized. For now, women are one of the important parts of information technology employees across the globe. But still, despite the numerous efforts on attracting and retaining women in the industry their numbers are not comparable to men. The wage gap and slow career development are some of the crucial problems as well. We will make an industry overview and analysis of indicators that may affect the gender gap by providing statistical and econometric analysis based on salary reports from International Labor Organization, World bank data and UNESCO educational statistics.
