About this event

General Assembly and ChickTech are joining forces with AAUW’s to address the issues of the gender pay gap by going beyond the widely reported 80 percent statistic.

You’ve probably heard that men are paid more than women are paid over their lifetimes. But what does that mean? Are women paid less because they choose lower-paying jobs? Is it because more women work part-time than men do? Or is it because women have more caregiving responsibilities? And what, exactly, does gender bias have to do with paychecks?

AAUW’s The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap succinctly addresses these issues by going beyond the widely reported 80 percent statistic. The report explains the pay gap in the United States; how it affects women of all ages, races, and education levels; and what you can do to close it. For 2016, the fifth anniversary of The Simple Truth, we’ve updated the report with information on disability status, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
