The first equal pay day was on 1996. Today is the date that symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year. The World Economic Forum says it would take 217 years for disparities in the pay and employment opportunities of men and women to end. That is too long!
We need to support equal pay because it is morally the right thing to do. And we are missing out on a tremendous amount of economic value. In the U.S. alone we are leaving $2 trillion in GDP on the table by not addressing inequities in our workforce. There are companies like Pipeline Equity making a difference. Are you?
So today I ask you to send this email to the Head of Your HR function and CEO:
“Today is Equal Pay Day. It is not okay for it to take 217 years to have the inequality in pay and employment opportunities solved. What are you doing to solve this? And, how can I help?”
