The gender pay gap, visualized: Women work 63 unpaid days each year

{ object.primary_image.title }}

This startling calendar visualizes the gender pay gap in a visceral way. Put it on your wall. You can buy one for your boss, too—anonymously. Across the U.K., women make 17.3% less than men—a result of women holding lower positions than men in the workplace and women earning less than men even when they hold the exact same job. This is the gender pay gap. It’s a bad number, but it’s just a number. Like sales tax or inflation, it can be hard to visualize. “What’s 17.3% of $76,000 a year?” you may find yourself wondering.

How Big Is the Gender Gap Between Men and Women in SEO?

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Posted by NicoleDeLeon To anyone working in SEO, it’s fairly evident that this is a male-dominated industry. Although there are powerful women SEOs in the field (like Moz CEO Sarah Bird, for example), if you glance at a conference speaker lineup or peruse the bylines on search-related blogs, you’ll see that those who identify as female are few and far between. A recent list of the 140 most influential SEOs featured 104 men and just 36 women. So how big is the gender gap? And how does it translate to tangible things like pay and job titles? To find out, we mined the data from our State of SEO 2020 survey , which featured 652 SEOs in 51 countries. Here are some of the things we learned. But first, a mea culpa.

Forget leaning in or out: These are the questions we should be asking women (and men)

{ object.primary_image.title }}

A GM at Techstars says, “Rather than asking women (and now men) to lean in or lean out, why not ask them what they would do if they could set the goals and make the rules?” In the last decade, we’ve seen an increase in the amount of capital going to female founders , a slight increase in the number of Fortune 500 companies led by women , and more women than ever holding corporate director positions . But at the current rate of change, we won’t see gender parity in the workforce for 150 years. Yes, there is progress, but the end results are abysmally low. Read Full Story

There’s a massive pay gap between men and women who work from home

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The wage gap among remote workers was glaring, even before the pandemic pushed many to work from home. It’s Equal Pay Day, the symbolic annual point when the average woman’s pay finally matches the previous year’s pay for a male counterpart. According to Census data , the average female worker earns 81 cents for every dollar the average man earns. Of course, averages do not account for factors such as race, role, or even parental status. And they don’t take into account whether or not someone is working remotely. Read Full Story

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Women are more likely than men to go audio-only during virtual meetings, according to a Harris Poll conducted exclusively for Fast Company. On days when Melissa Klinko knows she’ll be seen on Zoom or Microsoft Teams, she whips out her mascara wand and then logs on early to make sure she looks right—centered on the screen, no up-the-nostrils view. Otherwise, she’ll opt for audio-only. Read Full Story
