Focus on Biases in the Wage Gap
The American Association of University Women's (AAUW) annual report "The Simple Truth about the Gender Wage Gap (Spring 2015)" outlines how the gap plays out in various occupations and by age and race.
Excerpt from the article summary:
  • The pay gap has barely budged in a decade.
  • Women face a pay gap in nearly every occupation.
  • The pay gap is worse for women of color.
  • While more education is an effective tool for increasing earnings, it is not an effective tool against the gender pay gap.
  • The pay gap also exists among women without children.

Diversity & Inclusion – Gender Focus
Stanford: Gender Bias and Women-Led Enterprise: Research by Sarah Thébaud reveals how bias directly impacts female entrepreneurs.
Highlight from the article:
  • "Venture capital firms — the tech industry’s kingmaker — employ fewer female partners than they did during the dot-com bubble, dropping from 10 percent in 1999 to just 6 percent in 2013, a study from Babson College in Massachusetts found."
Research & Reports
Sue Gardner, former Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation, posted a library of 65 relevant reports and research studies for women in tech.
