White House reports 56% of hires are women, pay gap narrowed

President Joe Biden has filled about 56% of his senior White House staff positions with women, including about 36% who come from racially and-or ethnically diverse backgrounds, according the White House.The Biden administration published the gender and pay analysis of its staff on Thursday as it delivered a required annual report to Congress listing the title and salary of every White House office employee.The administration said the data shows it is “the most diverse administration in history” and also has only a narrow pay gap between men and women on staff.The average salary for women in the administration is $93,752, while men average $94,639, representing about a 1% pay gap. That compares with a 37% gender pay gap in President Donald Trump’s administration during his first year in office, while President Barack Obama’s pay gap was 16% at the same point in his presidency, according to an American Enterprise Institute analysis of staff salaries.
