The gender pay gap, unfortunately, is very real. We all know that.

Most statistics show women making around 78 cents for every dollar men make.

That’s $780 for every $1,000 made by men.

$39,000 for every $50,000

$780,000 for every $1,000,000

…You get the point.

We’re missing out. Big time. 

Don’t give up yet, though. There’s good news (at least if you’re on the path to becoming a CEO of a large company): Women execs now outearn their male counterparts. 

Yes, you heard me correctly. The study analyzed compensation for 21 of the 22 current female CEOs in the S&P 500 and found that while male CEOs make $12.7 million on average, women are making $18.8 million.
