Abstract

The Gender Wage Gap has been documented since the 1960s yet women still face disadvantage in their earnings compared to their male counterparts today. Many scholars attribute the gender wage gap to human capital factors such as educational attainment and workforce experience. While human capital factors are not irrelevant, organizational factors better explain the gender wage gap. In addition to explaining the organizational factors that influence the gender wage gap, I will delve into the pivotal role managers play in maintaining the gender wage gap.

While human capital factors are not irrelevant, organizational factors better explain the gender wage gap. In addition to explaining the organizational factors that influence the gender wage gap, I will delve into the pivotal role managers play in maintaining the gender wage gap.
