In celebration of International Women’s Day, we took this opportunity to delve into our data spanning the past three years to analyse the trends in female placements, pay differentials, and the distribution of roles. Our mission was clear: to gauge the effectiveness of our efforts in fostering a more inclusive and equitable environment.

In 2021, Synapri embarked on a initiative aimed at supporting women in tech. Collaborating closely with our clients, we set out to not only increase the representation of women in job placements but also to confront head-on the issue of the gender pay gap. The results we unearthed from our data analysis have filled us with a sense of optimism, indicating a promising trajectory towards narrowing the gender gap within the tech sector.

Here are the key findings from our analysis:

  1. Increase in Female Placements: From 2021 to 2023, the number of women placed by Synapri surged by a staggering 117%. 
  2. Rise in Salaries: The data revealed a remarkable upward trend in both permanent salaries and contract rates. Permanent salaries witnessed a commendable surge of 22.28% from 2021 to 2023, indicative of a shift towards fairer renumeration packages. Similarly, contract rates experienced an 11.71% increase over the same period, signifying a positive trajectory.
  3. Expansion in Leadership Roles: Over the past three years, there has been a notable shift in the representation of women in leadership positions. The percentage of women placed by Synapri with titles such as Manager, Director, or Consultant witnessed a steady rise, with a remarkable 39% increase in 2023, 36% in 2022, and 30% in 2021. This upward trajectory underscores the strides made towards achieving gender parity in senior roles within the tech industry.

At Synapri, we remain steadfast in our dedication to fostering a culture of inclusivity, where diversity is not just celebrated but embraced. Join us in shaping a future where women in tech not only excel but lead the way towards a more equitable and inclusive world.
