Should it and does it are 2 different questions. Obviously it should not, but it’s also not always the case and not for obvious reasons. For example, a woman who has a child typically takes longer maternity leave than a father taking paternity leave. That additional time can sometimes be seen in raises and in promotions. Then you can go a step farther and say some people may make assumptions about what opportunities they give to women that they assume want to start a family soon (that likely aren’t passed to men). There again, opportunity differences could lead to raise or promotion differences. It’s too naive to just come in and say no - don’t think any will say gender should play a role, but that doesn’t mean there’s no bias in a supposed meritocracy like consulting.

The graph doesn’t represent consulting or take into account the vast number of variables that effect wage gap. Poor, lazy research

How is this a question? Just google it - at Deloitte, their report shows it does effect pay. Facts are facts, folks

Salary? No. Promo opportunities (thus impacting salary indirectly) - maybe

Pwc2, how many years does it take to go from M to SM? You think there’s no impact to maternity leave? You think the partners at the firm aren’t thinking about progression of women who may have children? I’m a male and it’s not like I’m looking for a fight, but bro, you naive.

Ehh that seems like a huge leap..can’t see a nexus there..seems mostly made up

As a man, I can tell you that no, it does not.

Do you think a man taking paternity leave would see a similar impact on lifetime earnings?

No difference here. We have look at this from several different angles for at least two decades

When controlled for all relevant variables, the pay gap does not exist. Spreading the 78 cents to the dollar is the dumbest most ignorant thing someone can do, or it's propaganda.

Jesus the counterpoints on here are so naive and don’t understand nuance! A1, the argument is not a male partner gets $1 for every $0.73 a female partner makes. Read the article above the gap is about having more men than women in senior, high paying positions. When you look at things like staffing being somewhat variable, driven by network and having no hard and fast rules (and assuming staffing and project work is key to progression), it’s not surprising that bias that shows up not in how you pay but in how you have people work that then circles back into how people get paid (due to reviews and/or promotions) No one in this thread made a $0.73 claim so get your head out of your ass.
