Half of 50 major US firms get 'F' in gender pay equity, investment group says

Only three of 50 top U.S. companies — Citigroup, Mastercard and Starbucks — earned an "A" in gender pay equity, according to an analysis from investment manager Arjuna Capital and shareholder advocacy group Proxy Impact.

The firm ranked companies based on their efforts to disclose and act on gender and racial pay gaps. The ranking considers five categories: equal pay gap, median pay gap, racial pay gap, coverage and commitment. The five main categories have 10 subcategories scored on a scale of 0-1, with 1 equaling 100 percent pay equity. Companies were awarded a correlated letter score based on category and subcategory measurements.
