“Women and racial/ethnic minorities are well represented in lower-level leadership positions. However, in nearly all administrative positions, women are paid less. The report identifies that age is a factor in the salary gap between men and women in leadership roles, as the salary gap is generally higher at older ages compared to younger ages.”
