Hillary Clinton joined a round table discussion on gender pay equality, broadcast live on Personnel Today earlier today. An on-demand version is now available.
Glassdoor’s event, held in New York City, on “Equal Pay Day” in the US, will comprise a frank discussion about the reality of the gender pay gap and explore contributing causes and potential solutions, from employers, education and government policies.
The round table will be moderated by Diane Brady, a journalist, most recently with Bloomberg. Participants include:
- Hillary Clinton, former US Secretary of State and Democratic presidential candidate;
- Robert Hohman, co-founder and CEO, Glassdoor Inc;
- Lori Nishiura Mackenzie, executive director of the Clayman Institute for Gender Research, Stanford University;
- Dan Henkle, president, Gap Foundation and senior vice-president of global sustainability at Gap Inc;
- Megan Rapinoe, World Cup football champion and Olympic gold medallist; and
- Tracy Sturdivant, co-founder and co-executive director of Make It Work.
While the discussion will focus on issues facing the US, it will provide some context to equality in the UK, where a gender pay gap reporting obligation comes into force from 2017.
The discussion will refer to Glassdoor’s recent survey of more than 8,000 people into the gender pay gap, which was conducted online in Canada, Switzerland, Germany, France, Netherlands, the UK and the US.
This web broadcast is organised by Glassdoor.
