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?

The pay gap is one of the most pressing issues for women today. This presentation will provide an overview of this important topic, which we hope will help you explain it to others.

Join Professional Women of McLean County as we welcome Gena Glover, Director of Philanthropy at YWCA McLean County for this important topic.
