The gender pay gap impacts a broad intersection of Women, their families, and their future.

The gender pay gap measures the difference in median hourly earnings between men and women who work full or part-time in the United States.

Career choices certainly influence the gap, but bias and gender discrimination factor heavily into the wage gap; with a lack of accountability in inclusive hiring practices or pay compensation philosophy, women, especially women of color, are disproportionately affected. When you calculate how this unfair practice affects women over time, the cumulative effects of it are astounding. 
The simple truth is that the gender pay gap impacts a broad intersection of Women, their families, and their future. According to Pew Research, women, on average, earn 82 cents on the dollar. Pay disparity continues due to bias in women-dominated fields: education, nursing, and administrative work, while engineering and other STEM occupations are deemed more valuable. These gender-based stereotypes continue to permeate workforce development and recruitment strategies.
