Gender Pay Equity: The Journey Continues

Gender Pay Equity: The Journey Continues

This presentation will review the implications of March 24, 2021, otherwise known as “Equal Pay Day,” the specific date this year when the average man in the United States could start work and earn the same amount by December 31 as the average woman, in the same job, who had worked all year long.

In recent years, gender pay equity has experienced a continuous sense of “one step forward; two steps back”. EEO-1 Component 2 reporting, as a tool for identifying specific regions, industries and organizations where this type of discrimination is most pronounced has arrived, departed, and is now poised to arrive again at HR professionals’ desks. Discussions about what it’s going to take to eradicate sexual harassment and gender-based discrimination in the workplace (the #MeToo movement) inevitably lead us to questions like: Is it “good enough” for employers to simply acknowledge the gender discrimination inherent in acts of sexual harassment? Or is it time to step past the words, and into action, and to focus on the steps we need to take to truly rectify the pay equity gap?

Regardless of what your company’s views and current efforts are, it’s also important that every HR professional be aware that the state, city or other local jurisdiction in which you operate may have gender-equalizing laws in place.

What you will learn

  • Review the most recent statistics around the gender pay gap
  • Discuss the history, causes and barriers to rectifying the gender pay equity gap
  • Understand the federal government’s efforts related to resolving the gap
  • Uncover how cities, states and localities are stepping in
  • Explore the impact of gender pay equity on workforce attraction, retention, and engagement
  • Evaluate the role that a well-designed HRMS might have on your current gender pay equity situation
