Gender Pay Gap Data

The Equal Pay Day Calendar encompasses a cross-section of women, including those who work part-time or seasonally, to represent a more accurate picture of how the gender pay gap impacts diverse communities. Taking a more inclusive approach ensures that we can advocate on behalf of all women in the workforce.
