EPIC And The 2030 Agenda

Equal pay is essential to achieving full gender equality in the world of work and a fairer, more inclusive world in general. Target 8.5 is bold and ambitious and requires an equally bold and ambitious partnership to meet it. EPIC was founded on the recognition that no single actor can solve this challenge alone and that progress can only be accelerated through cooperation and collaboration between a diverse range of stakeholders. By joining the Coalition, stakeholders demonstrate their commitment to achieving Target 8.5 and gain access to an invaluable network of support and expertise as they work to achieve equal pay and reduce gender pay gaps in their country or region.
