 TEMPO Talks: The Gender Pay Gap
Special Women's Leadership Collaborative Edition

Date: August 7, 2020
12:00 - 1:00 PM

Event Description:
In June, the Wisconsin Policy Forum released the results of gender pay gap research report - Milwaukee's gender pay gap narrows but persists - commissioned by the Women's Leadership Collaborative. By analyzing the median wages earned by women vs. men in Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties, we now have a clearer local picture of the pay gap, with data that exposes occupations with the worst gaps, and context around other contributors such as race, care giving, and gender discrimination. During this Webinar, researchers Betsy Mueller and Joe Peterangelo will discuss key findings from the research report and highlight the top things leaders should know to help accelerate closure of the gap. Then we'll move into solutions with compensation expert Nicole Schmidt, including a tool to help leaders begin to assess equal pay in their own organizations.
