Men who lead nonprofits in western Pennsylvania earn about $42,000 more on average than women who do so, according to a recent study by the Robert Morris University’s Bayer Center for Nonprofit .
Women led 57 percent of the nonprofits surveyed and made up 74 percent of the work force. But male executive directors earned an average of $116,868 per year, compared to $74,770 for female executive directors. And the gap is growing, not shrinking.
Final tip: This is the sort of news story that starts female employees wondering, “Am I underpaid, too?” But resist the temptation to tell employees that they can’t talk about their compensation. Remember, the National Labor Relations Board says you can’t gag compensation talk among employees.
