This free virtual program is part of the US-Japan Business & Public Policy Program, and the 90-minute participatory discussion will examine how the COVID-19 pandemic will affect the gender pay gap.
While women overall in the U.S. earn about 80 cents for each dollar paid to men, the disparity in pay among some female minority groups is worse than among all women, according to the National Women’s Law Center’s analysis of 2018 Census Bureau data. Internationally, the gap is even wider in some countries. The pandemic has fundamentally changed the way people work around the globe. Is the now widely accepted remote working arrangement an equalizer for women’s career advancement, or does it exacerbate the inequity?
Join us for an interactive roundtable discussion—led by Nan Sato, Special Counsel with Fisher Phillips—about pay equity to help bring greater understanding to the situation for women of color. Understanding and empathy will help effect change.
