Dismantling Social Injustice: Closing the Pay Gap

Live Online via Meetup

Register (Free!)

ERA’s Shannon Williams, Director of our Equal Pay Today initiative, will be interviewed on Meetup‘s Live online series, Dismantling Social Injustice on the subject of “Closing the Pay Gap.”

The pay disparity between men and women in the United States is a complex and persisting problem. Despite all the attention it’s received, the pay gap has only closed by four cents in the past decade. At this rate, men and women won’t achieve wage parity for decades to come. In the next event of Meetup’s Dismantling Social Injustice series, we will learn about the ongoing issue of the gender pay gap and its severity, as well as the pay gap for people of color.

Join Shannon Williams (she/her), Director of Equal Pay Today for a discussion with moderator Gwynn Krueger (they/them), Director of Customer Experience at Meetup. Participants will learn about historical and structural disparities and factors such as pay secrecy, occupational segregation, pregnancy leave that contribute to the pay gap. From there, we will learn the necessary actions we must take to help and support wage equity.

A Q&A session will follow the panel discussion.
