The gender proportion in digital labor market is unequal, as the number of women workers is less than men workers. Additionally, the study shows that the number of women enrolment in IT studies reach 60%, yet the graduates are only 51.9% and the number of women who work in technology field is less than the graduates’ number. Particularly in Indonesia, there is urgency to increase women representativeness in IT field as women tend to leave the IT profession due to certain reasons, including the work-family issue. Hence, by using social cognitive career theory in career self-management (SCCT-CSM), this study tried to investigate the psychological factors affecting the commitment of women who possess IT profession. The data collection is supported by online survey and analyzed using Structural Equation Modelling (SEM)-PLS due to limited number of respondents. The data confirms the impact of psychological factors in SCCT-CSM framework toward the commitment of women, both in terms of career and organization. This study gives a contribution toward the SCCT-CSM framework towards commitment concepts in the context of IT as a part of STEM (science, technology, engineer, math) field as well as in the context of gender analysis.
