In 2016, 63% of women were offered lower salaries than men for the same job at the same company, Hired found, but women of color were offered even less.

For every $1 a white man makes in a tech job, Recode reported that:

  • White women with the same job make 90 cents
  • Asian women with the same job make 87 cents
  • Latina women with the same job make 83 cents
  • Black women with the same job make 79 cents

Not only are women offered less, but 53% of the time, Hired found that companies didn't even interview women for a position, while only 6% of the time they exclusively interviewed women.
