Gender Equity in the Workplace
According to the Institute for Women's Policy Research, women made just 79 cents for every dollar earned by men in 2015. Though this number represents progress (in 1990 the figure was 70 cents), it is far from parity. Meanwhile, as women are occupying more leadership roles in the workplace and "leaning in," as Facebook's COO Sheryl Sandberg termed it, concerns remain.
Is a seat at the table enough to counteract the "mansplaining" culture of many workplaces? What more needs to be done for women of color? And what's the business case for gender equity? Join us for a conversation about policy, progress, and the path to equity in the workplace.
