Although nonprofits have been hiring more women executives, their pay still lags that of men in similar-size organizations. The largest nonprofits, with annual budgets exceeding $50-million, have been slower to hire more women chief executives, a GuideStar survey on nonprofit salaries shows.
While over half of smaller groups (with budgets of $1-million or less) had women chief executives in 2011, only 16 percent of the largest groups had women executives that year. The survey is based on Form 990s filed during the 2011 fiscal year.
