PROGRESS / PERFORMANCE
GENDER INEQUALITY
Prevailing management metrics make this outcome all but inevitable.

Measure State and you Measure Progress

Gender-pay-inequality-The-Simple-Truth
In 2016, women working full time in the United States typically were paid just 80 percent of what men were paid, a gap of 20 percent (Semega et al., 2017). The gap has narrowed since 1960, due largely to women’s progress in education and workforce participation and to men’s wages rising at a slower rate.
At the rate of change between 1960 and 2016 women are expected to reach pay equity with men in 2059. But even that slow progress has stalled in recent years. If change continues at the slower rate seen since 2001, women will not reach pay equity with men until 2119 (figure 1).
The gender pay gap has lifelong financial effects. For one, it contributes directly to women’s poverty. In 2016, 13 percent of American women ages 18–64 were living below the federal poverty level, compared with 10 percent of men. For ages 65 and older 11 percent of women and 8 percent of men were living in poverty (Semega et al., 2017). Eliminating the gender pay gap by increasing women’s levels of pay to those of men could cut the poverty rate for working women in half (Hartmann et al., 2014).

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
