#GEMGirls4Equity April 4, 2023 Campaign
DID YOU KNOW
Last year, in Canada, working women made 89 cents for every dollar earned by a man*
While the difference is slowly closing, the gender pay gap continues to preserve its role as a long-standing contributor to gender inequality. Additionally, it highlights just one way in which women are discriminated against in the workplace. Pay inequity also stems from societal norms regarding career choices, advancement opportunities, and the burden of unpaid care work women undertake. Pay equity not only ensures fairness, equality, economic growth, and social justice, it is the law.**
Be a part of change, and help the next generation of young women to break the barriers. #GEMGirls4Equity
