Why Post-Roe Gender Equity Starts in the Workplace
Perhaps the most uncomfortable secret lingering under the corporate reaction to Roe’s reversal is that we could have severely diminished the likelihood of ending up in this situation had we closed the gender equity gap decades ago. Too little, too late. And now we’re left playing defense. Within days of the Roe ruling, more than 100 companies employing millions of Americans expanded abortion-related health benefits. But reacting to inequitable public policy cannot excuse us from taking steps to close the gender equity gap at our companies. In this session, you’ll learn why gender equity in politics starts and centers in the workplace. You’ll also learn a holistic framework to patch equity gaps in the employee lifecycle (closing the pay gap is table stakes).
