Equal Pay Day symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year. Join us for a conversation about closing the gender pay gap. Panelists will discuss how the pay gap operates, particularly for women in law firms; the EEOC’s priorities in wage discrimination; changes that companies and firms can enact to address gaps in compensation and promotion; and HR policies that could similarly decrease the wage gap.

Lunch will be provided by Planet Depos.
