Women Power the Nonprofit Sector but They are Systematically DisempoweredOne month isn’t enough, but it doesn’t have to be the only time we recognize what women are doing in the nonprofit sector. Let’s do this for each other, daily and for the long haul until things get better. Like what? While I know you are powering organizations big and small behind the scenes and in the spotlight, there is a leadership and pay gap in this sector among women.
- Median compensation for female CEOs is 4% to 25% behind those of males (depending on the size of the nonprofit)
- Only 18-22% of women lead nonprofits with budgets larger than $50 million
- Even bigger gaps and heavier weight for WOC
- Harassment, gaslighting, and shaming behind the scenes
