Girls Just Wanna Get Paid | MAKERS Equal Pay Day 2018
Our goal is simple: MAKERS never wants to “celebrate” Equal Pay Day again. So we are bringing together women executives from MAKERS@ partners Adobe and lululemon who are making it their mission to achieve pay parity in their companies for a live discussion on how to implement real change now.
[MUSIC PLAYING] ELLA BELL SMITH: I didn't expect parity to be in my lifetime. But not in my granddaughter's lifetime. That's unacceptable.
RACHEL THOMAS: We used to be 86 years away from closing the pay gap. We are now 100.
SHERYL SANDBERG: Pretending it's not happening and it's not happening in your company is often the root of the problem.
KATIE JURAN: We've pledged this year to reach global pay parity between women and men.
IJE-ENU N. NWOSU: Who establish gender equity as its strategic objective.
LYNN LEWIS: We will double the number of women of color across our organization.
DONIEL SUTTON: To maintain global pay parity between men and women.
CELESTE BURGOYNE: By April, 2018 we will have a 100% pay equity.
YOKO MIYASHITA: And it's not a zero sum game. Everybody wins when we're more equal.
SHELLEY ZALIS: And that's how we will start achieving equality equal pay for equal opportunity. Thank you.
