What does gender equity look like in the workplace? How do employers across sectors advance economic security, health, opportunity, and well-being for women, particularly for low and middle income earners? This week, commit to examining (or re-examining) the policies and practices of organizations in your sphere of influence. Below are some resources that support the development of truly equitable workplaces.
Champion equitable policies in your workplace.
Advocate for policies that are proven to be good for women, such as wage transparency, not requiring salary history, paid family leave, quality health insurance, support for child and elder care, and flexible work hours. Do so particularly if your job is highly secure, if you serve in leadership, and/or if you’re a man.
