Now you know. But now what, you ask? You’ve taken the first step in making a difference – you’ve put yourself in the picture. If more people know how big the Gap is, more people can get behind the efforts to close it.

Come back and recheck your Gap now and then. See what the data says, whether it is actually closing over time.
