Add Your "Two Cents" to Equal Pay

Do you have words of advice for women in the workforce? Lessons you learned the hard way about earning fair pay, or negotiating for higher pay? Recommendations for ways to save for retirement even if you step out of the workforce to care for a family member?  

Watch what others have to say on our Home Page or YouTube Channel, then submit your own video. We want to hear it all!

Instructions:

Recording your video

  • Record a short video (up to 2 minutes) with your advice, questions, comments or encouragements.
  • In your video, please identify yourself by first name only and the state where you live, for instance, “Hello, my name is Joan and I’m from Pennsylvania.” Please do not include any other personal or identifying information in your video.
  • The videos don’t have to be fancy! Recordings can be made using a cell phone or laptop camera.
  • Using a cellphone? Please be sure to hold the phone horizontally.

Welcome to the CLOSING THE GAP initiative.

Gender wage ratio data show that in 1960 women earned 60.7 cents compared to a dollar earned by men. More than 50 years later, the ratio hovers at 76.5 cents to one dollar. At this pace, it is projected it will take another 45 years to approach pay equity.

Closing the Gap: 50 Years Seeking Equal Pay explores why the pay gap persists and how to improve it. We hope to arm women with information and skills to assist them in earning fair pay throughout their own careers and toward a secure retirement.
