Fortune 100 Companies

 

The Fortune 100 companies are the leaders of the American economy. Together, these companies employ more than five million people. If the Fortune 100 companies closed the wage gap, they’d set an example for all companies.

 

But the Fortune 100 have a long way to go. In 2001, only two Fortune 100 companies had anything that even resembled a balanced management team; the rest did not even come close. How large is the wage gap between women and men who work at the Fortune 100? That’s hard to say. These companies do not publicly disclose wages. For now, counting the women at the top will have to be a proxy measure of those companies’ commitment to ending sex discrimination.

 

The WAGE Project will report quarterly on how gender-balanced (or far from it) are the Fortune 100’s upper-level staff. We will look at whether the CEO made a commitment to pay women employees like men—and what actions they are taking. With this information, all of us will be able to assess whether these leaders care about paying women fairly and equally ... and whether we’re inclined to buy their products, their services, their shares of stock.
