The need for true equity in equity compensation – TechCrunch
So with the likes of Intel, Salesforce and Apple publicly committed to gender pay equity, there’s nothing left to see here, right? As a baseline, while progress is evident, gender pay is an unfinished product to say the least. Even if we solely left the gender pay gap to just a cash salary disparity, there is something further to see here. Many companies and even naïve job-seekers consider equity as the “third pillar” of compensation beyond titles/compensation (which come hand-in-hand) and benefits. Is it really asking too much that we require gender pay equity, including all three compensation pillars (cash, benefits and stock), to be a priority?
