Pay Equity

The gender pay gap is alive and well. That’s right: women and men still are not earning equal pay for equal work! This is happening despite substantial evidence showing that pay equity is not just the right thing to do—it’s the smart thing to do. Fortunately, business leaders and organizations have an opportunity to help move the needle right now to close the gender pay gap.
