People of all genders are represented to varying degrees in all sorts of careers, at many different levels. So why does a wage gap persist between those who identify as men and women, as illustrated by the $2905 salary gap between male and female faculty at the University of Waterloo?

Let's examine why this wage gap between genders still persists with panelists who were a part of salary review boards or hiring boards, research gender economics, or otherwise have experience with this gender-based pay gap.
