The Gender Wage Gap: 2010 (Updated April 2011)

Source: Institute for Women's Policy Research

From the report:

During 2010 the weekly gender wage gap narrowed slightly. Median weekly earnings of female full-time workers were $669, compared with male median weekly earnings of $824. Based on these data, the ratio of women’s to men’s median weekly earnings was 81.2, slightly higher than in 2009 (80.3) and above the historical high of 81.0 in 2005. During recessions the gender wage gap typically narrows because bonus and overtime payments, which on average account for a larger share of male than female earnings, are cut back. In real terms, women’s median weekly earnings did not increase during 2010; men’s median weekly earnings decreased by just under one percent.

Another measure of the earnings gap, the ratio of women’s and men’s median annual earnings for full-time year- round workers, was 77.0 in 2009 (data for 2010 are not yet available), essentially unchanged since 2008. (This means the annual gender wage gap for full-time year-round workers is 23 percent.)

The annual earnings ratio for full-time year-round workers, which includes self-employed workers, tends to be slightly lower than the ratio for weekly earnings (which excludes the self-employed and includes full-time workers who work only part of the year). The two series exhibit the same general trend over the long term (even though they often move in different directions in the short-term).

    As an intranet manager you're likely to have lots of issues with your intranet, irrespective of whether it's 10 years old or 10 weeks old.

James Mullan explores how intranet managers can ensure the intranet makes a significant contribution to the organisation as a whole.

    Wednesday, 29th October 2014

    Regulatory compliance has long been the stock in trade of corporate information professionals, and the flow of regulation shows no sign of drying up. Recent European examples cover information provided by credit rating agencies, corporate disclosure of non-financial information, and even the use of Know Your Customer (KYC) due diligence to expose intellectual property infringements. In Britain, recent regulatory activity covers tax avoidance by multinational corporations and corporate disclosure of long term financial viability. Surprisingly, though, some leading businesses see compliance not as a burden but as a transformation opportunity - one that perhaps could be shared by astute information professionals.
