What's up with that, I wonder? Is gender equity suddenly that big a topic among compensation professionals?
I remember, back when it was published (and given a cover feature), a local colleague and friend asked me "why would you even write about that?" Because it was a topic that interested me, I countered, and because there were implications to "forcing" gender equality that people were overlooking or ignoring. Because the topic was drawing little attention from the compensation community and I felt it needed to be on everybody's radar screen.
And because it was a fun collaborative exercise. To shake it up, Jim took the female-friendly "pro" argument and I took the "con."
Alison sub-titled her column The Usual Suspects and Some Surprises. I suspect our article's appearance in the number one slot was one of the latter.
