Mind the Gap: How to Increase Gender Pay Equality


Dawn Lyon

Glassdoor Inc

The gender pay gap is real. Even when controlling for multiple factors, women in the U.S. still earn 95 cents for every dollar men earn according to Glassdoor Economics Research. More data and transparency around salary helps identify inequities and close gaps.

Join Lyon as she presents data confirming the gender pay gap by country, industry, and occupation, and gives practical tips and advice for negotiating salary and best practices for employers to leverage data and modify pay practices to avoid conscious and unconscious bias. Join this session and walk away with attainable actions to help close the gap.
