The wage gap is finally narrowing
For the last two years, the wage gap hadn’t budged. Our 2017 and 2018 reports found that on average, women were offered 4% less than men for the same job at the same company. But this year, we’re finally seeing progress: the wage gap narrowed to 3%. A similar positive trend has emerged in salary offers to men and women. Men were offered higher salaries 63% of the time for the previous two years, but that has since improved by dropping to 60%.

While these changes show improvement, our survey further reveals that of the 61% of women who discovered they were being paid less than men at the same role in their company, 16% found the difference was at least $20K.
