The law states that male and female physicians should be earning the same, but time and time again, the data has proven that this is not the case. Unfair pay structures and circumstances impact female doctors, and they all add up to an uphill battle for equal pay.
It’s not just that female physicians are earning less generally.
The specialties we dominate are paid less. We are funneled away from the higher-paying specialties. There also aren’t enough women in leadership advocating for equal pay, and we’re conditioned not to rock the boat.
When it comes to getting paid what we’re worth, there are biases and barriers that are layered in at every step of the process.
How do leadership structures get in the way of advocacy? What are some of the societal structures we are battling? What can we do to empower ourselves?
In this episode, I’m joined by certified life coach, physician, and founder of Wealthy Mom MD, Bonnie Koo. We discuss some of the key issues that play into the gender pay gap.
