5 Things We Need To Do To Close The Gender Wage Gap

Sheila Ronning Speaks to Authority Magazine

CEO & Founder of Women in the Boardroom™, Sheila Ronning, spoke with Authority Magazine about what needs to be done to close the gender wage gap. Ronning says “Three main factors causing the disparity in pay between men and women include inescapable stereotypes and social norms about gender and work, a lack of workplace support for family caregiving, and discrimination when it comes to women of color in the workplace. In fact the gender pay gap has been such a problem that Congress introduced numerous acts over the years to address the issue. However, due to a large number of companies being privately held and not required to comply with Congress’ directives, these statutes were unable to make a large enough impact to successfully bridge the gender pay gap.”
