Web Accessibility Practitioners Survey Shows Inequality Between Practitioners

Here are a couple of things that jumped out at me when I read through the survey published by WebAIM:

There are more women and disabled people working in the area of web accessibility than in the wider web design field.

“The prevalence of women in the web accessibility field is over double that reported in the broader web design/development field.”

Both women and disabled people are earning less than their male non-disabled colleagues. So, discrimination exists even in a profession which is all about promoting equality?

“Female respondents earn an average of at least $8,200 less than their male counterparts. “

“A significant disparity also exists for those with disabilities – they earn an average of at least $12,400 less than those without disabilities despite having very similar education level and years of experience.”
