The Fair Pay Political Roundtable will address how to translate fair pay principles into legislative practice. Equal pay for equal work and work of equal value has been high on the international agenda. There is ongoing international call for immediate and concrete action. In the Fair Pay Political Roundtable, experts from policy-making, NGOs, and academia will exchange on legislative approaches across the world.
The gender pay gap with its underlying causes is a global phenomenon: no country can report a wage gap of zero. There is strong support for equal pay, as an issue of fairness, and the readiness to act is immense. Irrespective of this consensus, however, women continue to be paid less for the same work or work of equal value.
