Leaning in and Getting Paid? Gender Equity in the Workplace

Friday, May 20, 2016
12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.

"The pay gap has major impacts on women's ability to provide for families." – Kathleen Clyde

According to the Institute for Women's Policy Research, women made just 79 cents for every dollar earned by men in 2015. Though this number represents progress (in 1990 the figure was 70 cents), it is far from parity. Meanwhile, as women are occupying more leadership roles in the workplace and "leaning in," as Facebook's COO Sheryl Sandberg termed it, concerns remain.

Is a seat at the table enough to counteract the "mansplaining" culture of many workplaces? What more needs to be done for women of color? And what's the business case for gender equity? Join us for a conversation about policy, progress, and the path to equity in the workplace.


Panelists include:
Diane Bergeron, Associate Professor, Organizational Behavior, Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University

Priyanka Chaudhry, Partner, EY

Kathleen Clyde, State Representative, Ohio's 75th District


This conversation will be moderated by Maxie C. Jackson, III, Station Manager, 90.3 WCPN ideastream.
