工资仅有男性的37%,Pinterest前高管控诉性别歧视

王波非(Phil Wahba) 2020年10月16日
这位硅谷老兵指出,只有提高透明度才能解决薪酬歧视问题,在高管层级上也是如此。

Pinterest前首席运营官弗朗索瓦•布劳格

弗朗索瓦•布劳格称,她发现,在电子商务公司Pinterest 于2019年3月发布招股说明书时,其薪资仅相当于自己同级别男性高管的37%。

作为一名硅谷老兵,布劳格曾经就职于谷歌与Square两家公司。2020年4月,在加入Pinterest两年之后,她被公司解雇。四个月后,布劳格向Pinterest提起诉讼,称该公司纵容歧视、厌恶女性并且工作环境充满敌意。布劳格在被解雇前担任该公司的首席运营官一职,是公司的二号人物。

Pinterest此前曾经表示正在审查这起诉讼,并对公司的文化与做法进行独立审查。

布劳格指称,即便在4月Pinterest全力冲刺IPO时,公司其他高管仍然将其排除在重要会议之外。她表示,薪酬歧视问题在硅谷非常严重,要想解决这一问题,公司必须披露更多薪酬信息,除此之外,别无他法。

布劳格在10月13日举行的《财富》最具影响力的新一代女性峰会上说:“只有提高透明度才能解决薪酬歧视问题,即便在高管层级上也是如此,而现在公司对薪资架构采取的都是保密态度,歧视问题被深藏在了暗处。”

布劳格声称,她入职Pinterest早期便已经发现该公司存在排斥女性的俱乐部文化,并表示自己受到了“很多微侵犯”。比如,虽然她是公司的二号人物,却被排除在重要会议之外,甚至连为激发华尔街对Pinterest IPO兴趣而举办的“路演”也无法参加。

她说:“这种行为对女性高管开展、推进工作非常不利。”

同时,布劳格表示,她很希望自己当时能够与公司里的其他女性员工建立更亲密的关系,为包括自己在内的女性员工提供更多帮助。她说:“最终你会发现,自己并不孤单,我想,或许我本可以做得更多。”(财富中文网)

Françoise Brougher says she found only out she was making 37 cents on the dollar earned by her male C-suite counterparts at Pinterest when the e-commerce company's IPO prospectus was published in March 2019.

The former Pinterest operations chief, a Silicon Valley veteran with earlier stints at Google and Square, was ousted in April 2020 after two years with the company and four months later, she sued Pinterest, claiming it fostered a discriminatory, misogynistic and hostile work environment. As COO, she was second in command at the company.

Pinterest has previously said it is reviewing the suit and conducting an independent review about its culture and practices.

Brougher, who accused Pinterest's top executives of excluding her from key meetings even as the company was gearing up for an IPO that happened in April, said companies divulging more information on pay is the only way to end pay discrimination, up and down the corporate ladder, a problem she said is acute in Silicon Valley.

"This problem can be solved only if there is much more transparency, even at the executive level of compensation, because it's cloaked in secrecy," Brougher told the Fortune MPW NextGen conference on October 13. "Discrimination is insidious," she said.

Brougher claims that early on, she saw signs of a clubby culture at Pinterest that excluded women, and said she was the recipient of "a lot of microaggressions" such as being left out of important meetings or excluded from the Pinterest "road show" aimed at lining up Wall Street interest in the Pinterest IPO even though she was the company's second-in-command.

"This behavior keeps female executives from advancing and doing their job. And that's what happened at Pinterest," she said.

At the same time, Brougher says she wish she had fraternized more with other women at the company to help females there and herself. "Ultimately you realize you are not alone," she says. "I think I could have done more."
