Female general counsels make significantly less compared to men in the same position, according to a new survey.
While women earned an average of $575,200 as general counsels in 2012, men brought in almost $150,000 more annually, with an average of $723,700 in total cash compensation.
The survey, done by ALM Legal Intelligence, also found women in in-house counsel positions brought in bonuses 40 percent lower than their male counterparts.
Here’s our question for you:
In today’s age, does this gender gap in the in-house community surprise you? What should be done to bridge it?
