Wall Street Journal: Gender Wage Gap Widens at Age 32

The gender pay gap in the US widens around age 32 as women become underrepresented in management roles that generally pay twice as much as non-management roles. Workforce analytics firm Visier looked at 165,000 employees from 31 companies, finding that 32-year-old women earn 90% what their male counterparts do but that share declines to 82% by age 40. It concludes that 33% of the wage gap for workers over age 32 would disappear if women managers’ proportions equaled men.

Academics took another look at why women earn 20% of undergraduate engineering degrees but represent only 13% of the US engineering workforce. Looking at 3,000 twice-monthly diaries, they concluded that, “Informal interactions with peers and everyday sexism in teams and internships are particularly salient building blocks of [gender] segregation.” In other words, their internships, summer work opportunities and team-based opportunities often make women feel marginalized as they are relegated to routine or menial tasks. This causes anticipatory socialization – becoming disillusioned that the field will allow them to do meaningful work and make the positive social impact they’d hoped for.
