Women in Tech Breakfast Series: “Don’t Ask, Don’t Get: Pay Equity for Women”

Maryland Center for Entrepreneurship (MCE)
9250 Bendix Road
Women are almost half of the American workforce. They are the equal, if not main, breadwinner in four out of ten families. They receive more college and graduate degrees than men. Yet, on average, women continue to earn considerably less than men. The wage gap has real consequences and is a pervasive issue affecting women in all walks of life, regardless of marital, familial or employment status. Surveys show that most business leaders consider pay equity “good business” and a step that is necessary to remain competitive. Pay disparities are not limited to one career or to one demographic, and affect women of all ages, races, and education levels—regardless of their family decisions. Join us for an interactive discussion on this critical challenge. Our panel will share stories, statistics and helpful tips on how you can change this statistic and change the story.
