May Willamette Chapter Meeting

This facilitated webinar will uncover the implications of April 2, 2019, otherwise known as “Equal Pay Day,” the specific date this year when the average man in the United States could start work and earn the same amount by December 31 as the average woman, in the same job, who had worked all year long.

Gender pay equity as a topic in the media is back with a vengeance, courtesy of #MeToo and #TimesUp. Discussions about what it’s going to take to eradicate harassment and discrimination in the workplace inevitably leads us to these questions: Is it “good enough” for employers to simply acknowledge the gender discrimination inherent in acts of sexual harassment? Or, is it time to step past acknowledgement, and into action, to truly rectify the pay equity gap?

Regardless of what your company’s views and current efforts are, it’s important to be aware that the state, city or other local jurisdiction in which you operate may have gender-equalizing laws in place.

We will be meeting on Thursday, May 16th at 6:00 pm at the Kernutt Stokes offices located at 1600 Executive Parkway, Ste 110, Eugene, OR 97401
