The gender pay gap has existed since women entered the workforce. Utah ranks 50th in the nation when it comes to gender pay equity—the result of a unique set of cultural norms and business practices and policies. Any step we, as a state or business community, take will help to improve this standing which would have positive effects for Utah’s economy. While the gender wage gap may seem daunting, the good news is you have control over how your company addresses that gap.
Linda Wardell, from City Creek Center, will identify what actions you can take to close the gender wage gap, and what policies to adopt to create a more fair and equitable pay environment. When everyone has the same incentives and opportunities, we all benefit from increased diversity, greater innovation and more financial stability which leads to a stronger economy.
Our Non-Profit Spotlight for this luncheon is The Younique Foundation. They offer a free four-day retreat for adult female survivors of child sex abuse. Often times, they need journals and bowls to provide to the participates during the time that they are there.
