"Cultivating Pay Equity" | Shannon Drohman & Erin Wolford

Session Time: 11:00 AM

Session Description:

Pay equity is a complex topic that goes much deeper than equal pay for equal work. Join us as we talk about the current state of pay equity, including new laws that affect your organization. We will also explore designing and conducting pay equity analysis, getting to the story behind the data, and developing tactics for addressing pay inequities. It takes sustained commitment to cultivate pay equity; therefore, we will discuss how HR programs and processes systemically impact pay equity across an organization.
