    Leveling the "Paying" Field - Gender Pay Gap

    Sponsored by - Blue Federal Credit Union

    Women are paid less than men, even when occupations are highly compensated and highly skilled.  This is particularly true in Wyoming, where the pay disparity between the sexes is the second largest in the nation, ahead of only Louisiana.  This presentation will focus on the processes organizations can and should put in place to level the “paying” field and ensure the retention of valuable talent.

    Attendees should come away from the presentation with an understanding of the gender wage gap in the nation and Wyoming, including statistics (and issues with those statistics) and possible causes; federal and state laws (and pending legislation) that require equitable pay; and the role HR can play to fix the gender pay gap, including specific actions attendees can take to address any such pay gap in their own organization.
