Women tend to ask for lower salaries than men do. You’d think it would, and I’ve long advocated for salary openness. Knowing what the average was for the position would certainly help you craft a salary, but an experiment at Hired, said it made the gap even wider. Jessica Kirkpatrick, Hired’s lead data scientist, believed as I did, that once presented with the proper information, women and men would ask for similar salaries.
