Equity and Equality of the Sexes in Communication

Symposium on the Equity and Equality of the Sexes in Communication

 Thursday, October 4, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 1p.m.

 Women earn less, experience negative company cultures and still face a glass ceiling in the communications industries

Clear, objective and robust communications reported or distributed by individuals representative of the population they serve are the foundation of a democracy. Even though women make up more than half the population of the United States, and also compose three-fourths of the graduates of college and university communication schools today, a survey of the communication industries in 2018 revealed the following highlights:

  • Women earn lower salaries than men
  • Women are more likely to spend fewer years in the communications professions than men and lack longevity in their current positions
  • More women are middle managers and in junior level positions, while men dominate top management positions
  • The culture of the company often prevents women from being promoted in favor of men
  • Most communicators, both men, and women, enter their positions without any digital training and do not receive digital training in their current jobs
