Gender Pay Gap

The gender pay gap is alive and well, even though closing it, along with the gaps in opportunity and leadership, isn’t just the smart thing to do, it’s the right thing to do. Fortunately, business leaders and organizations have an opportunity to help move the needle right now to close these gaps, because until women achieve parity in business leadership roles, they will be marginalized in every other arena, and the pay gap will remain.
