Peggy Outon was recently interviewed by Third Sector Today, an online nonprofit news website, about the Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management’s 74% project. The interview is available for download in podcast format. (Please note that you are required to register to download the file.)
74% is a multi-year research project exploring the lives of women leaders in nonprofit organizations.
Women comprise a great majority of the nonprofit workforce in Southwestern Pennsylvania. In fact, 74% of those working in the regional nonprofit sector are female. Approximately 225,000 of the 300,000 employed in nonprofits in Allegheny and surrounding counties are women.
Wage equity, however, is not a reality for most women working in regional nonprofit organizations.
On behalf of women in the nonprofit workforce, the Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management at Robert Morris University is leading the way to promote change in this picture through research and education.
