A year and a half ago, for every $1 earned by Microsoft male employees, Microsoft female employees in the U.S. earned 99.7 cents at the same job title and level. Today, Microsoft announced that this number has gone up. For every $1 earned by men, our female employees in the U.S. earn 99.8 cents at the same job title and level.
Racial and ethnic minorities in the U.S. combined earn $1.004 for every $1 earned by their Caucasian counterparts. Breaking it down even further, African American/black employees are at $1.003; Hispanic/Latino(a) employees are at 99.9 cents; and Asian employees are at $1.006 for every $1 earned by Caucasian employees at the same job title and level, respectively.
Kathleen Hogan, Executive Vice President, Human Resources at Microsoft said that these numbers reflect their commitment to equal pay for equal work and they will continue their commitment to equal pay by monitoring this data and publicly disclosing it as part of their annual public diversity and inclusion information and data reporting.
