Changes to AFP CC Job Postings
We are pleased to share that beginning December 1st, AFP Colorado Chapter will require salary ranges for job postings. This decision has been made in alignment with AFP Global, which began requiring salary ranges in job postings as of November 1, in alignment with the Colorado Equal Pay for Equal Work act which requires salary ranges be included in all job postings beginning January of 2021, and in alignment with the AFP Colorado Chapter commitment to advancing equity in the fundraising profession.
Requiring salary ranges promotes equity in the fundraising profession: Studies have shown that women and people of color often have significant disadvantages during salary negotiations. When salary ranges are not included in a job posting, it reinforces the salary gaps we see in the fundraising profession and in all of society based on gender, race and other factors. Salary compensation of any position should be based on the work and value of the position to the organization, and while there may be variations based on experience and skill level, the levels should be commensurate with the value of the role the organization.
Transparency in salary ranges is more efficient and effective at finding the right candidate: salary ranges set expectations from the beginning and ensure there is no surprise about salaries and that neither party is wasting their time on a candidate or a position that doesn’t meet their salary needs. In addition, there is research which shows that jobs with salary ranges get 30% more attention.
Lastly, we encourage transparency in the relationship between our donors and our organizations. We should expect no less from our organizations in hiring practices.
