Addressing gender pay gaps for female providers

The gender pay gap is not news. In 2016, a Forbes article pointed out that the healthcare and social assistance industry had the fourth highest gender pay gap behind the finance and insurance; public administration; and professional, scientific, and technical services industries, even though women held 80% of the jobs in the healthcare a­nd social assistance industry. The study was conducted by PayScale and included information collected from 1.8 million employees between October 2014 and October 2016. PayScale also ­surveyed 80,000 men and women about gender inequity, finding that workplace perceptions of the wage gap varied based on an employee’s education. For example, the report stated, “The higher a woman’s education, the more likely she was to believe that gender inequity was a problem at her organization” (Kauflin, 2016).
