Today marks International Equal Pay Day—a significant initiative set forth by the United Nations in 2019 to fight for gender parity. The essence of this day is to bring global attention to the persistent gender pay gap and rally collective efforts to ensure that equal work is rewarded with equal pay, regardless of gender.
While strides have been made, there's still a long road ahead to bridge the gender pay disparity that exists in many sectors, including construction. Whether you are a manager reviewing pay structures, an employee fostering conversations about wage transparency, or simply someone sharing resources and statistics on social media, your actions can contribute to this global mission.
Let's unite today to amplify this critical message.
