Compensation Report





Women in Government Relations and our partner Bloomberg Government are proud to present the results from our second compensation report highlighting trends shaping government professionals’ careers, with a focus on gender gaps as they relate to salary, compensation, benefits, and other offerings. Thank you everyone who participated in the collection of this data and development of this report. Here are some key takeaways:

  • The gender gap is real. On average, women make 68 cents on the dollar compared to men. 
  • There are signs of gender salary adjustments taking place. 2017 to 2018 base salary increases are higher among women than men.
  • Men are more likely than women to agree with the statement “men and women at my organization are paid equally for the same jobs".

We invite you to share this report and its findings with your network of friends and colleagues.
