On March 13, 2017, Fortune.com published an article comparing compensation of Marissa Mayer, Yahoo’s CEO, and her replacement, Thomas J. McInerney. This article, titled “Yahoo’s new Male CEO Will Make Double Marissa Mayer’s Salary,” reports limited information and draws erroneous conclusions to support their discussion of the gender wage gap. Our article provides a comparison on both CEO’s compensation plans and proves there are more important factors than gender that should be considered when setting CEO pay.
