Which Companies Pay Women Fairly — Not The US Soccer Federation

I made you a list… but first let’s talk about why.

The United States Women’s National Soccer Team has won three World Cups and four Olympic gold medals. An estimated 30 million people watched the 2015 World Cup final, witnessing an electric offense that sealed a huge win against Japan. It was, and remains, the highest rated soccer match in American history, including games played by the U.S. men’s national team. Mothers around the country watched with their daughters. Little girls cheered from coast to coast, believing anything is possible. As women, we were hopeful. We were inspired. In the words of President Obama, “This team taught all America’s children that playing like a girl means you’re a badass.”

U.S. Women’s Soccer Team

I’m lucky to work for PowerToFly — a team of people who are passionate advocates for gender equality in talent acquisition, including getting equal pay- and I was shocked to learn during a 60 Minutes news segment that despite their achievements, the Women’s Soccer team players say they have been discriminated against, paid less and treated worse, in comparison to the U.S. men’s team. The team is fighting the U.S. Soccer Federation over wages and treatment they say are not commensurate with their male counterparts. They hope a victory will help close the gap, not just in sport, but in any job where women do the same work as men for less pay.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to hear this. Because despite significant strides for equal pay for equal work, we really have a long long way to go. In fact, it’s been estimated that women are typically paid 79% of what men are paid. And at the current pace, the average woman won’t earn equal pay until 2059, according to the Institute for Women’s Policy Research. So much for inspiring our daughters.

The opportunity is now to change that trend. It’s time for all women to stand up and fight for equal pay for equal work — or move to companies that are committed to providing equal pay for equal work consistently throughout their organizations like Accenture Tech Labs, Airbnb, Amazon, American Airlines, TheBostonConsultingGroup, Buffer, Care, CEB, Cisco, Deloitte Digital, Dow Chemical Company, Expedia, The Gap, Glassdoor, GoDaddy, Jet.com, Johnson, L'Oreal, PepsiCo, Pinterest, Popcorn Heaven, PwC US, Rebecca Minkoff, Salesforce, Slack, Spotify, Staples, and Stella McCartney.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

Supporting Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Only 4% of companies that say they value diversity consider disabilities. Even fewer include learning and thinking differences.

While neurodiversity is a concept that is gaining more awareness, many employers have still not fully grasped the importance (and benefits) of understanding neurodiversity and how to effectively incorporate and retain neurodivergent individuals in their organizations.

30+ Ways Companies Are Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

Founded in 1989, Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends October 15. The four-week span over two calendar months may seem a bit odd, but it comes with good reason, as it covers independence anniversaries of several Latin American countries, as well as key celebrations in Hispanic and Latin communities. Apart from commemorating major holidays and historic milestones, this month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

We asked some of our partner companies what they're doing to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at work this year, and we were inspired by the wide range of responses, from highlighting the impact that employees have in local communities to hosting fireside conversations on allyship to sharing performances and instruction of famous cultural dances.ot only are these companies honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, they're finding ways to spread positive change throughout the year. Here's what they're doing, in their own words:
