WID wants to reiterate just how much our hearts go out to the many colleagues, friends and family members who are struggling to cope with the challenges and tragedies resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. And it is especially with the economic implications in mind, that we take this opportunity to envision what recovery will look like and how we can together help each other to further real, systemic change for women, their careers, and their families.
On March 31st we observe Equal Pay Day, a date that symbolizes how far into the year all women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year. African-American women must work an extra 5 months to earn the same as men, reaching the same as men in mid-August. Latina women must work until a date in late September. Despite the increased attention in the wage gap, at the current rate, it will take another 40 years before women reach parity. Pay equity can be approached and achieved in different ways. Whether you are an employer or employee, you can make the workplace more equitable for everyone.
Join a group of premier experts on this subject to learn about how the wage gap affects you and what you can do about it.
You will learn how organizations can proactively identify and address pay inequality issues in their organizations and actions women can take to advocate for themselves.
