    Pay Equity: Latest Developments and Best Practices

    American Bar Association, 1 PM GMT

    The past 50 years have seen extraordinary progress for women.  Yet many still point to a seemingly intractable gender pay difference.  This panel will provide the insight you need to understand issues involving pay equity — a highly publicized, yet often misunderstood topic.  The panel also will brainstorm about specific approaches that leaders in various industries —including the legal profession — are taking or can be taking to eliminate pay disparities, and the responsibilities of government, employers, and society as a whole in addressing this important issue.

    Here are a few of the puzzles the panel will explore:
    · When you peel away the politics, what does “gender pay gap” mean?
    · How do you identify potential pay discrimination liability?
    · Are there observable, unintentional, and quantifiable factors that contribute to a persisting pay gap, and how can I find them? Have these factors changed over time?
    · How effective are the Equal Pay Act and state discrimination laws at addressing these factors?
    · What, if anything, can be done to bridge a gender pay gap when one appears?
    · What lessons can be learned from corporate America? Is the gap narrower in certain industries, and if so, what are they doing differently?
    · What can we do to narrow what some say is a widening pay gap in the legal profession?
    · Can women personally effect change by improving negotiation skills, “leaning in,” overcoming the “confidence gap,” or through other personal actions? Should they be expected to?
