Bridging the Pay Gap Through Policy Action!
Join this panel discussion about policies in the workplace, at the government level or in the community, to deliver the most impact in reducing gender inequalities in Canadian STEM workplaces.
Despite recent progress and ongoing efforts, women largely remain under-represented in leadership roles. Overall women earn less than men in the workplace despite representing 50% of the population. In science, technology, engineering, and math, we still see many fields with a leaky pipeline of talented women leaving the field. As a result of the current state of affairs, we are missing out on the leadership talent and full workplace contributions of women in our society. As the world faces more complex challenges than ever, it is even more critical that everyone is bringing their best contribution. That includes women, and to enable it we must reduce gender inequalities in the workplace. So, what policies can help? Join us to find out more!
