How can you do your best work if you don't know that you're being compensated equitably?

Pay equity is the concept of compensating employees who have similar job functions with comparably equal pay, regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity, or other status.

The companies below make their commitment to pay equity a reality through self-assessments, third-party analyses, salary bands, and more. Read on to learn how they approach equitable pay, and be sure to check out their open roles if you're eager to join a company where parity is a priority.


"Our executive team regularly reviews a diversity metrics dashboard to implement initiatives that drive recruitment, retention, internal mobility and advancement. We know there’s always more to do, but by recognizing these statistics, we can evaluate our progress and challenge ourselves toward further change.

At Visa, women earn $1.00 for every $1.00 earned by men for the same work globally, and underrepresented employees earn $1.01 for every $1.00 earned by white employees for the same work in the United States.

"Build Relationships

Your external work network is as important as your internal one. It’s about strengthening your reputation across the organization. You get that through building relationships. People you work with cross-functionally get exposure to you through specific projects, not always through your day-to day work. Don’t assume people know all that you bring to the table. In every organization, there are a key group of decision makers, build relationships with them. It’s critical to have someone in that group who isn’t afraid to put your name forward for opportunities or projects. It’s essential for women in particular to do this work."

"At Workiva, transparency is the driver of everything we do. When new salary transparency laws went into effect in some states, requiring the base compensation salary range be posted on all new job postings, Workiva took the proactive step of including a salary range on every single new job posting in the U.S. (regardless of the state) in order to be more transparent in our pay practices. We're also updating our job categories to make pay equity easier to evaluate and track. We believe equity starts with transparency."
