Dr. Sara Benedí Lahuerta, UCD Sutherland School of Law & Ms. Katharina Miller, European Women Lawyers Association (EWLA) are hosting this very exciting online 2-day event.
Systemic differences in wages on the basis of gender have been actively contested at various levels for at least seventy years, with little progress. Around the globe, many jurisdictions are now turning to pay transparency as a tool for eliminating the Gender Pay Gap (GPG) by empowering women with information and placing the onus on the employer to achieve a fair pay structure.
This online workshop will be a forum to critically evaluate how and to which extent pay transparency regulation can contribute to address the GPG. Discussion will focus on key challenges and best practices to consider when enacting, implementing or reforming pay transparency regulation on the basis of the experiences of supranational and international bodies (the EU, UN Women), a wide range of national jurisdictions and a private certification system (The Fair Pay Innovation Lab).
The speakers and discussants’ diverse backgrounds (scholars in the fields of law, business and economics, practitioners, representatives of international organisations, officers of European agencies and umbrella organisations) will ensure a rich yet accessible debate on the potential that pay transparency holds to address the GPG as a regulatory tool, in theory and in practice
This online workshop will take place on Wednesday & Thursday 22 and 23 September 2021.
