Wage Equity Now

JUNE 10, 2020

Over the past few months, Megan Costello and the leadership of the Massachusetts Women’s Forum have continued to make progress on our big idea: closing the raw wage gap by 2030 by asking companies to publicly report their overall wage gaps by gender and race.

Some of the biggest updates include our work with Judy Habib’s team at KHJ Brand Activation. KHJ helped to create a name, vision and a logo for this project. We’ve also recruited over 15 coalition partners including but not limited to: YWBoston, Amplify Latinx, The Boston Club, The Commonwealth Institute, Center for Women and Enterprise, the Boston Women’s Workforce Council and many more. These partners are critical to the success of this project. They are helping to recruit businesses and offering their area of expertise — solutions for how organizations can close their gaps.
