Clayman Institute: Micro-sponsorship: A Tool to Combat Micro-inequities

Lori Mackenzie, Executive Director of  the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University, and Caroline Simard, Exponential Talent Co-Founder and Research Director at Clayman Institute, were part of a partnership with Women Transforming Technology, conducting a conversation that brought together women in senior positions in technology, and diversity and inclusion professionals. Senior women agreed that the implicit or hidden norms that guide employee behavior and power are the most problematic. They came up with “micro-sponsorship” techniques to offset the 10,000 tiny cuts, or micro-aggressions, women experience daily that lead to their disenchantment and the organization’s loss. 

Glassdoor: Demystifying the Gender Pay Gap

Glassdoor Economic Research examined pay data from the US, UK, Australia, Germany and France, finding women earn $0.76 on the dollar compared to men. When comparing US workers with similar age, education and years of experience, the gap dropped to 19.2%. Then, factoring in the same job title, employer and location, the gap fell to 5.4%, meaning women earned 94.6 cents to a man's dollar. A similar pattern revealed itself in all countries. According to Glassdoor, the single biggest cause of the gender pay gap is occupation and industry sorting of men and women into jobs that pay differently throughout the economy. The report also concludes that pay transparency can root out unjustifiable pay gaps.

Society for Human Resource Management: Employee Job Satisfaction and Engagement 2015

86% of US employees reported overall satisfaction with their current job in 2014, the highest level of satisfaction in the last 10 years. Two of the top contributors were respectful treatment of everyone at all levels, and trust between employees and senior management. Study authors recommend: pay attention to the corporate culture and relationships between employees; be flexible when forming a compensation strategy; define workers’ roles and promote interaction so they know where they fit in.
