We've talked salary transparency & how it helps women get equitable pay

Let's talk HONORARIA which are even more opaque

bc they are irregular it's particularly hard to know norms

Please reply with your honorarium experience

$, type of talk (academic, industry, non-profit)
I'll start

Academic seminars: rare & low; up to $2k

Academic public lectures: more common; $1-5k

Industry: I don't do these

Non-profits: almost never $

For extended visit w multiple talks & meetings, $ more common

Best ever: $25K for a 10-day visit to a foreign uni 😳
These numbers are MY experience. Interested to see how yours differ.
About 15 years ago a Harvard economist told me he wouldn't give a talk in Europe for < $10K plus expenses

Some foreign unis have an easier time with a honorarium than with reimbursing unusual travel requests (eg larger hotel room for family, or getting a AirBnB)
Re travel:

Do NOT get the cheapest flight to a talk. Get the shortest. It's YOUR time.

For flights> 8 hours I request first/biz class. Need to sleep on flight if I'm going to arrive & immediately start working
