About this Report

In our 7th annual study of Wage Inequality in the tech industry, our research shows that although it has narrowed for some, members of most underrepresented groups continue to have a persistent wage gap.

To drive change, it's imperative employers prioritize equitable hiring processes and continue to take tangible, real efforts to narrow the wage and opportunity gaps. Hired is committed to supporting employers in these efforts while strengthening diversity and representation, starting with data and advanced DEI features like Diversity Goals and Bias Alert.

This research incorporates survey responses from employers as well as tech workers and jobseekers. We compare and contrast these sentiment findings with proprietary data from our job search/hiring marketplace. Explore the possibilities and unleash the potential of DEI and greater salary transparency in your organization, even when times are tough. It’s the right thing to do.
