This presentation focuses on whether increasing discourse surrounding the link between pay transparency and salary equity has resulted in arts organizations disclosing salary information in their job postings. Data regarding whether salary was disclosed in arts administration job postings was collected over a seven-month period. Over 800 job postings were analyzed to determine if they provided details on salary. The presentation also investigates if salary disclosure has an effect on what positions arts administrators choose to apply for. The findings indicate that many arts organizations still do not provide salary information in the job description even though it is an important factor for candidates.
