The Perfect Balance
Tech giant Intel recently released its Diversity & Inclusion Annual Report 2016, detailing the state of women and minorities within the company. While the report makes clear that the overall increase of underrepresented minorities in Intel’s U.S. workforce was small—reaching 12.5 percent in 2016, up from 12.3 percent in 2014—the company achieved 100 percent pay parity and promotion parity for both women and underrepresented minorities.
Despite the amazing progress of the past century, women continue to struggle with a lack of pay parity. Currently, women working full-time earn just 80 cents for every dollar a man earns—that’s $10,470 less annually—and the elimination of the gender pay gap has largely stalled over the past 15 years. A recent Wells Fargo report delves in to the real reasons women are still paid less than men.
In an effort to discover the best and worst states for women, WalletHub analyzed 50 states and the District of Columbia on 19 “key indicators” of living standards for women. Separated into two categories, Women’s Economic and Social Well-Being and Women’s Health and Safety, the indicators range from unemployment rates and cost of doctor’s visits to friendliness towards women’s equality and women’s preventive healthcare.
Diversity and inclusion (D&I) is one of the hottest topics in the housing ecosystem and American workplace as a whole. One of the biggest issues concerning the inclusion of women and minorities is accountability, and the ways in which we can ensure that agencies and companies truly implement D&I into their cultures.
