Toolkit for Gender Equity in Partner Compensation Released

By Sabrina C. Beavens

The ABA Gender Equity Task Force has released its Toolkit for Gender Equity in Partner Compensation. The toolkit is a compilation of resources for bar groups and firms to initiate and advance the conversation about gender equity in partner compensation in the legal profession. Check back to the Task Force’s web page as it is anticipated that ABA President Bellows will be announcing two new initiatives of the Task Force during her April 9 Twitter Chat on Equal Pay, including: a virtual symposium on Equity in the Legal Profession (follow #equityABA on Twitter for more info) and a “Click Your Heels” virtual awareness campaign that will be launched on April 9 and will culminate at the Day of the Woman at the ABA Annual Meeting in August.
