In order to promote gender and racial pay equity, AFP Tampa Bay is leading the way and will be requiring salary ranges for all new positions posted on the AFP Tampa Bay Job Bank effective immediately.
We understand this might be a significant change for some organizations, but all of us at AFP Tampa Bay strongly believe this is an important shift in increasing equity, inclusion and fairness in the fundraising profession. AFP Tampa Bay is following the lead of AFP Global in requiring salary information.
Here are the some of the reasons we are making this change.
First, not including the salary range in a job posting reinforces the salary gaps we see in the fundraising profession and in all of society based on gender, race and other factors. Studies show that women and people of color often have huge disadvantages during salary negotiations. Requiring salary ranges promotes equity in the fundraising profession.
Second, there is research which shows that jobs with salary ranges get 30% more attention. In addition, salary ranges set expectations from the beginning and ensure there is no surprise about salaries and that neither party is wasting their time on a candidate or a position that doesn’t meet their financial or budgetary needs.
Finally, this change is all about encouraging transparency. We demand transparency in the relationship between our donors and our organizations, and transparency is a key principle in the AFP Code of Ethical Standards. We should expect no less from our organizations when hiring a fundraiser (or any other position).
If you have questions about setting ranges for various jobs, you can consult the annual AFP Compensation and Benefits Report to see the general range of salaries for a variety of fundraising positions.
AFP Tampa Bay, AFP Global, the fundraising profession and many other sectors of society are focusing on equity, and this change is the next logical and much needed step. We hope you’ll join us as leaders in the inclusion, diversity, equity and access space.AFP Tampa Bay
