Gender Equity Expert Offers Data Backed Solutions Leading Up to April 10 Equal Pay Day
Katica Roy explains why data is the key to gender parity and now is the time for change
DENVER (April 4, 2018) – Did you know that on average for every dollar a man makes in this country a woman takes home 82 cents? Based on this estimate a woman would have to work until April for her earnings to catch up to a man’s earnings from the previous year. This calculation was the impetus for Equal Pay Day which takes place on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, a symbolic day that brings awareness to the wage discrepancies between men and women in the U.S. workforce.

Data is the key to that understanding and the solution to parity, says Katica Roy, international speaker, CEO, gender economist and equity expert.
