No training, no new skills?
The fact that only 15% of IT managers emphasize training tells me something I have always suspected: it is extremely hard to be a generalist in IT. Once you're identified with a skill, you may be typecast, even though you yearn to break out, try other things. Or perhaps training in IT comes via on the job experience. If you dare to try it and can succeed, you're in.

Re: "Gender Gap"?
The gender gap in pay exists across many industries in the US for several reasons, but there is one factor that women themselves can change. Study after study shows that men ask for higher salaries in the first place, then ask for raises more often. Women also take longer than men to reach for the next rung on the career ladder. CIOs like Wal-Mart's Karenann Terrell will tell you that they are trying to mentor women in their IT organizations to fight these instincts. See her advice, here.
