And there’s a shift happening in the nonprofit and for-profit sectors toward more equitable hiring practices—cultivating more diverse candidate pools (here are some local job posting ideas to attract a more diverse candidate pool), banning salary history questions, and requiring salary transparency.
Below are just a few resources that speak to why it’s become a recommended and beneficial practice amongst various sectors, and amongst capacity building organizations like CNE, to disclose salary in job postings:

Research has shown that the exclusion of salary information disproportionately impacts women and people of color. And it’s important to us to make the change toward requiring salary information as part of our equity work, and because we believe it benefits our members, nonprofit employees, and the nonprofit sector as a whole.
We encourage you to reach out if you have questions, concerns, feedback on how this change might affect your organization, or would just like to think through nonprofit hiring practices with us. We’re in it with you, and want to thank you for partnering with us in this work.
