March 2020 | Webinar: Lead the Way for Equal Pay: Tools and Strategies to Change The Story on Pay Equity
This dynamic webinar was presented to new and existing Equal Pay Compact signers just a few days after Governor Scott declared a state of emergency to respond to the COVID-19 public health crisis.
Our event quickly pivoted from in-person to virtual, and our participants, already committed to improving the economic security of women, gained new knowledge, tools, and resources to close the gender wage gap.
For businesses who've not signed on yet, VCW's Equal Pay Compact is a voluntary online pledge enabling Vermont employers to indicate their commitment to closing the gender wage gap. By signing on, employers agree to implement tangible action steps to improve gender equity in their workplace. VCW offers a suggested strategies document for inspiration. This project's goal is to help make Vermont one of the best states for working women by closing the gender wage gap, removing barriers to women's advancement, and improving economic security for women and their families.
