We know now that diverse teams make better decisions, which positively affects outcomes for the company and its employees. If more businesses and organizations clarified their compensation structures and worked toward greater pay transparency, what might be possible?
Let’s Find Out Together
Throughout the coming year, our team at ProsperCity will shine a light on the brave business leaders who are doing their part to close wage gaps and end salary discrimination.
To do this, we are launching a blog series that illuminates practical steps and tips for cultivating more inclusive workplaces, with a special focus on pay equity. You’ll hear from small businesses, large companies, nonprofits, and certified B Corps across the country.
These leaders walk the talk in real time, connecting the dots between pay equity and prosperity in their workplaces everyday. They operationalize their company’s values. They cultivate cultures of belonging. The ripple effect of their actions are wide.
