Survey: 17% of Companies Don’t Pay Women as Much as Men

Today, i4cp released its latest survey results on sexual discrimination, sexual bias and glass ceiling issues. It’s safe to say that these are still prevalent problems in the business world. The study revealed that more than half of the companies polled have received at least one sexual discrimination complaint, though most companies have official avenues to report incidents (76%) and training for managers (67%).

The survey also indicates that 17% of responding companies report that men are still paid more than female peers with similar expertise and experience. In general, women hold fewer upper-management positions than men, though women serve in SVP/EVP positions to a greater extent among companies of 5,000 employees or more.
