The U.S. Census Bureau reports that women still make less money than men. To recognize this ongoing gender equality challenge, March 16th marked Equal Pay Day, helping to drive awareness and attention to for workplace equity.
Women - and men, are actively using their voices and influence to advocate for change, working to break the bias and shape a more inclusive future for the next generation of female leaders. It's certainly encouraging to see companies increasingly adopting and implementing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs, while also searching for diverse leaders to drive transformation. The venture capital world is also responding - particularly female VCs who are focused on funding, empowering, and supporting female-founded companies to help level the playing field.
