EPIC members join forces for virtual roundtables to advance policy solutions to close gender pay gaps

23 Jun 2020

With the immediate health risks and economic impacts of COVID-19 top of mind, evidence suggests that progress in closing gender pay gaps may stall or reverse at a time when this progress is most needed.

A series of webinars organized by EPIC members will look at the impact of COVID-19 on gender equality and diversity in the world of work with a focus on practical solutions to address the gender pay gap.

To kick-off this collaborative initiative, we invite you to join us for the first virtual roundtable on Advancing policy solutions to close gender pay gaps on June 26th at 3pm BST / 10am EST to discuss: What are the necessary solutions for leaders in government, business, and trade unions to champion? How can we effectively collaborate to develop a healthier, caring, and more equitable economy?

Whether you focus on labour policies, business leadership or open and inclusive government principles, you are likely to encounter similar challenges when addressing this pernicious form of inequality impacting women, minorities, and persons with disability and can share lessons from related tactics.

Register here to join this conversation and help develop a shared understanding of underlying causes of gender pay gaps, identify promising solutions for key labour market actors to champion, and explore possible joint agendas for campaigning, advocacy, and research.
