About This Event

The Washington Center for Equitable Growth will host it’s next installment of its “Research on Tap” conversation series—a space for drinks, dialogue, and debate. The event will feature leading academics, policymakers, and advocates for a conversation about the causes and economic consequences of gender pay inequality—for individuals, families, and the broader U.S. economy.

The discussion will focus on questions at the intersection of gender pay equity and broadly shared economic growth:

  • What do we know about the causes of gender wage inequality?
  • How does pay inequality affect the broader economy, and how do those effects vary across demographic groups?
  • What is the range of public policy solutions that policymakers at the federal, state, and local levels can use to address the multiple drivers of gender pay inequality?

The event is open to the public. Please RSVP to attend.

If you have any questions, please reach out to events@equitablegrowth.org.
