Closing Greater Boston’s Gender and Racial Wage Gaps - Lessons from the 2021 Wage Gap Measurement
Without accurately measuring and understanding the gender and racial wage gap we cannot make progress. Kim Borman, Executive Director of the Boston Women’s Workforce Council (BWWC), will give an overview of their 2021 Wage Gap Measurement findings. You will learn about the BWWC and the work being done in the private and public sector employers to narrow the wage gap in Greater Boston. We will then discuss what steps you can take to help narrow the wage gap.
