Hey everyone! Chelsea from Unbounce here.
I’m really excited to let this incredible community know about a brand new, very important initiative for us here at Unbounce.
Here’s the backstory:
According to Stats Canada, Canadian women, on average, make $0.92 for every $1 made by a man, even when we adjust for differences in industries, occupations, and rate of part-time work. And in the US, American women make $0.98 for every $1 made by a man even when adjusting for the same role and qualifications. Over a 30+ year career, this gap can add up to a difference of hundreds of thousands of dollars. So while you might be trying to get ahead yourself, (who doesn’t want a raise, right?), others around you are still just trying to be seen for their worth.
In 2020, the gender pay gap isn’t up for debate. The better question is ‘how do I start mending it?’ Despite our own commitment to diversity & inclusion at Unbounce, we found a gender pay gap that made us invest in doing better.
Now we’re working to inspire others to do better too. We’re asking CEOs and/or HR teams to take our pledge to work toward pay parity. We’ve put together a comprehensive compensation toolkit to help folks at any company prioritize and eventually reach gender pay parity (read about the full campaign here).
So here’s where you can come in. We’d love your help in spreading the word to your networks about this campaign. Maybe it’s asking your own CEO or Head of Human Resources to take the pledge (send ‘em to this page!), or maybe it’s just tweeting to your social following. Every little bit helps.
