Wage Gaps by Race/Ethnicity and Gender: Current Trends and Opportunities for Change in the US
MARCH 31, 2021
About this Webcast
Our recent labor market research finds that wage gaps by race/ethnicity and gender remain large in the US. Our analysis shows that wage gaps between non-Hispanic White and Black and Hispanic workers are especially large and have actually increased in recent years. Several factors contribute to these gaps. Access to education seems an important predictor of wage differences, but even taking educational attainment into account, wage gaps continue to exist. A second, important predictor is the lack of representation of some groups in higher paying jobs, occupations, and industries. Despite the heightened awareness to wage and wealth disparities and multiple attempts to address them, these wage gaps have been widening. Join us for a special webcast as experts from The Conference Board discuss our findings.

- How to identify barriers to talent mobility and/or advancement to senior leadership and higher paid roles.
- Why strong growth in computer and data processing services contributes to rising wage gaps for Black workers.
