Moldova: Women and men in the information and communication technologies Sector (ICT)
A report released by the Moldovan National Bureau of Statistics and produced as part of the UN Project “Strengthening the national statistical system”, with the support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) and Sweden.
According to the study, Women and girls occupy only 31% of jobs in the ICT sector in Moldova and only 19% of digital professions. Only 4.6% of the girls studying in higher education choose STEM (Science, Technologies, Engineering and Mathematics) as their study profile. As a result, women get jobs with a lower level of qualification and, respectively, of remuneration in this sector. Women’s salaries in the information and communication technologies sector (ICT) are by 33% lower than of men.
