US Gender Gap / 11 of 15 top-paying jobs dominated by men

The balance of genders among top professions leans heavily toward men but women are making strides forward, U.S. employment firm CareerBuilder said.

“While employers have made strides in equalizing compensation for both genders, historical gaps are still present in some organizations today,” Rosemary Haefner, vice president of Human Resources at CareerBuilder said in a statement.

“Also contributing to the disparity in income levels is a higher representation of men working in more lucrative occupations. Fortunately, we’re starting to see that balance out as women account for a larger percentage of the overall workforce and pursue employment in high-paying areas,” she said.

A CareerBuilder survey indicated that four of 15 top-paying jobs are dominated by women. Among oral and maxillofacial surgeons and among orthodontists, 57 percent are women. Among prosthodontists, 62 percent are women. And 66 percent of pharmacists are women, the survey indicated.
