We’ve written about the pay equity gap here and here. And we’ll keep on writing about it until that gap is closed. The Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management has been working to advocate and raise awareness for the $.25 pay gap between men and women in the nonprofit sector—and they are raising funds to publish a book about their findings. Women make up 73% of the nonprofit workforce and yet get paid less than their male counterparts. The 74% Project promotes change and brings attention to this glaring inequality.
