    A new report by Guidestar shows that female nonprofit executives make less than men at every budget level.

    Guidestar released its 2016 Nonprofit Compensation Report on Sept. 13. Now in its 16th edition, the annual study uses data from 96,242 Form 990s to create a comprehensive snapshot of the nonprofit sector's compensation practices. It breaks down compensation using several metrics.

    The gap is relatively small at organizations with revenues less than $250,000, and scales up as revenues increase, reported NonProfitPRO. Organizations with revenues of greater than $50 million had the largest pay gap, with female executives making, on average, nearly $100,000 less than men.

    It's not all bad, though, according to the report. The percentage of female CEOs has generally risen since 2004. And in seven of the nine budget segments Guidestar uses, median compensation for female executives increased at a higher rate than for males. Only the top two budget segments -- greater than $50 million, and between $25 million and $50 million -- still saw greater increases for men than for women, with the latter segment separated by just 0.1 percent.

    Program area also plays a large part in compensation. Guidestar noted that large organizations and "areas associated with specialized knowledge" typically had the highest CEO pay. Science and technology research institutes and service organizations led all program areas with $168,650 in median compensation, while religious and spiritual development groups ranked lowest at $67,700.

    Have you ever tried to have a cultural conversation with a member of an unfamiliar ethnic group who happens to sit next to you at work?

    Or, like many Iowans, are you afraid that you may offend that person by asking him questions about his culture?

    It’s been seven years since Iowa shut down its state film tax credit program and stopped doling out lucrative financial incentives to lure filmmakers to make their movies here.

    A lot has changed in the film industry in those seven years.
