* AFP Ottawa is joining AFP Global to promote gender and racial pay equity. Effective immediately, we require salary ranges to be included for all new positions posted on the AFP Ottawa Job Board.
We understand that this might be a significant change for some organizations. However, all of us at AFP strongly believe that this is an important shift in increasing equity, inclusion and fairness in the fundraising profession.
Here are 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 more generally in society based on gender, race and other factors. Studies show that women and people of color often experience significant disadvantages during salary negotiations. Requiring salary ranges promotes equity in the fundraising profession.
Second, research shows that jobs which include salary ranges attract 30% more attention amongst job candidates. . Salary ranges set clear compensation expectations for both the applicant and hiring organisation from the beginning ensuring that all parties are negotiating a position that meets their financial or budgetary needs.
Finally, this change is all about encouraging transparency. We insist on transparency in our relationships between donors and our organizations;, this is why transparency is a key principle of the AFP Code of Ethical Standards. We should encourage no less from our organizations when undertaking the hiring of professionals to the fundraising sector.
