Achieving and Mantaining Salary Equity for Improved Performance

by Pascale Lane,M.D., Professor of Pediatrics, The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences

In the United States, women earn 79 cents for every dollar earned by men. Women of color suffer an even greater pay divide. Women’s career choices do not produce this gap; even in high-paying fields, women earn less than men. Gaps also exist in medicine and medical colleges, affecting physicians, physician-scientists, and PhD scientists. While some of the gaps can be attributed to hours of work, specialty choice, and other variables, men still out earn women after these variables are controlled.
