Please virtually join The Nonprofit Partnership's Erin Yates for [Zoom Meeting] Do Your Part to Close the Gender Pay Gap! on Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 10:00 AM EST!
It’s no secret that there’s a pay gap in America. Every March, countless news outlets cover All Women’s Equal Pay Day, the day by which a woman would have to work since the beginning of the previous year in order to earn the same amount of money a man earned that year, measured by median income . But what about adjusted income? What happens when we consider the intersection of race and gender as they relate to pay? Is the same true for “pink collared” professions?
In this session, Erin will provide a broad overview of the gender pay gap, dispel some of the myths and misconceptions associated with it, and discuss how organizations’ leadership can implement practical, commonsense low- or no-cost practices to do their part to help close the pay gap.
Attendees will leave the session with an understanding of:
The difference between the median pay gap and the adjusted pay gap, along with why they’re both important
How gender, race, and other factors intersect to inform our understanding of the pay gap, which in actuality is made up of a multitude of individual gaps (e.g. the gap between white men’s pay and Latinx or Hispanic women’s pay v.s. the gap between white women’s pay and white men’s pay)
How organizations and individuals within those organizations can take steps to close the pay gap
Time for Q&A will be made available at the end of this session.
