Here are the results of the poll in Newsletter #11

Do you believe the gender pay gap does not exist in your organization?
27,3% (No, it’s definitely there)
15,0% (Very slowly moving forward)
10,0% (Quickly closing in)
21,2% (Yes, there is no gap)
26,5% (No idea, there’s no transparency around this topic)

Total votes: 260

Although it’s good to see that there’s absolutely some progress in closing the gap, there’s no need yet to think that the gender pay gap doesn’t exist.

The gender pay gap is a result of many factors and a complex issue that will require powerful and inclusive solutions. Too bad salary is still a taboo topic in most workplaces, cause transparency could be one of the top solutions closing the gender pay gap.

What are your experiences and thoughts?

I would be interested in knowing if there are different perceptions of the existence of a gender pay gap based on gender itself. I.e. are women and men replying in the same way to this question? Typically there is lack of awareness about this (e.g. https://www.i4cp.com/productivity-blog/the-thorny-issue-of-gender-pay-and-perception), which your poll attempts to address but unfortunately falls short of.

I have experienced, there are some companies that have salary bands - to make sure that everyone is treated equally - but If one takes a closer look, women are often promoted one round later or are one level lower even with the same qualifications. So it doesn't stop at same salary for same title. Glad to see the discussion about fair pay evolving!
