From the President: Productive Engagement in Salary Equity

Pauletta Brown Bracy
2009 North Carolina Libraries  
He appointed the Better Salaries and Pay Equity Task Force which published a helpful resource, Advocating for Better Salaries and Pay Equity Toolkit (2003).  ...  The task force's pay equity advocacy program is founded on the reality of a predominately female workforce which is less well paid than those in fields of comparable work dominated by males.  ...  In the related field of network systems, the median projected salary was $61,390. The median for computer systems analysts was $64,890. An information scientist's salary was projected at $80,510.  ...

Toolkits and interface creativity

Saul Greenberg
2006 Multimedia tools and applications
