A study of salary survey data by job search site Dice indicated that U.S. women in technology fields still earn less than men overall, although this gap might be smaller for women in cloud engineering, systems architecture, and network engineering.

Also, female tech professionals in Minnesota might be out-earning their male counterparts (although the difference in pay did not satisfy the threshold for statistical significance).

Dice said since women have come to expect to be paid less, the average salary of a woman satisfied with her compensation was $93,591, versus $108,711 for a man.

In a February poll by software review site TrustRadius, 45% more women than men attributed the gender pay gap to discrimination and bias, while three times as many men cited differing job performance.
