Abstract
The gender pay gap is one of the most persistent problems and despite the progression of society and the world, it remains a pervasive issue that plagues societies all across the world despite advancements in gender equality and diversity in the workplace. This study uses existing literature on the topic as secondary data and aims to analyze the gender pay parity across various industries to analyze the factors causing the gender pay gap such as occupational segregation, discrimination, etc. Primary data is collected via a structured questionnaire which is circulated amongst 85 respondents, which includes questions on demographic details, their work experience, and awareness of the gender pay parity and the data is then scrutinized to reach a conclusion. In this study, it is seen that the respondents are aware of the prevalence of the gender pay gap and are concerned about the unfair compensation due to the gender of the employed person. This study interprets the data and then comes up with suggestions on how to improve the gender pay gap across the world. This study uses the results to contribute to the existing knowledge to provide evidence-based intervention for the gender pay gap.
