No Pay Gap at the Top

Executive pay expert Irv Becker explains why top female CEOs are making more than their male counterparts.

There are still far fewer women than men leading giant corporations, but the women who are there are getting paid on equal, if not better, terms. Three of the 10 highest-paid chief executives of S&P 500 companies are women. At the same time, women CEOs, on average, make more than their male counterparts. Irv Becker, a Korn Ferry senior client partner and leader of the firm’s North American Executive Pay and Governance practice, spoke with both the Wall Street Journal and radio station KCBS recently about why women at the top of the corporate ladder have hit, and surpassed, pay parity.
