The gender wage gap is the difference between what women are paid versus what men are paid for the same work. As of 2017, women were making just 80% of what men were paid for the same work (Vagins, n.d.). Studies have shown that salary disparity exists between men and women in academic libraries as well, which is somewhat ironic given that librarianship is often associated primarily with women (Silva & Galbraith, 2018, p. 324). Data also shows that while only 32% of academic librarians are male, men make up 43% of academic library directors. Research shows that women tend not to negotiate their salaries and compensation packages as much or as successfully as men do (Bear & Babcock, 2012, p. 743). This poster will explore how gender can affect negotiations and provide tips for strengthening negotiation skills.
