PMP Certification salaries: men vs women

PMP salaries men vs womenChetan Ramesh from Bangalore, India sent me a tweet to let me know that he’d included a quote from this web site in an infographic he had created for Simplilearn. His infographic shows a global comparison between the experiences and salaries of men and women, based on data, where PMP certification is concerned. He also shows which industries employ the most male and female project management professionals.

I think it is important that Chetan has highlighted the fact that on average, men earn more money with their PMP certifications than do women. He does indicate that the pay for women project managers is catching up to those of men, which is a good thing. Hopefully it will not be too long before both men and women earn salaries based on their skills, not their genders.

If you’re a project professional working in the field of Information Technology, this is something that you should take note of. In interviews and when hiring or promoting your employees, make an effort to judge the people you are hiring based on their skills, work experience, education, and certifications, and not based on factors such as race, gender, or religion.

  1. Found this website a week ago:, apparently these are dumps of questions from past exams. Have anybody tried it?

  2. Great article of comparison! More and More professionals are getting certified with Project Management right now. I agree that hiring should not be based on just the gender. Skills and certification are also important aspects to consider. Here is another resource site where you can level up your Project Management Career.
