Take the Equal Pay Pledge!

#EqualPayCA is an initiative led by the First Partner’s Office and the California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls to help close the pay gap in California, with a recognition that more work needs to be done to address the wage gap.

In recent years, California has taken critical steps to close this gap by passing the strongest pay equity law in the nation, the California Fair Pay Act (SB 358 – Jackson), and launching a statewide Pay Equity Task Force, led by the CCSWG. As a result, comprehensive resources, guidelines, and best practices are now available to assist employees and employers to better understand their rights and responsibilities under the law and how to move the needle in closing the pay gap.

The Future…

We are challenging businesses to take the Equal Pay Pledge and commit to conducting an annual company-wide gender pay analysis, reviewing hiring and promotion processes and procedures to reduce unconscious bias and structural barriers, and promoting best practices that will close the pay gap to ensure fundamental equity for all workers. Now it’s your turn – join us and take the Pay Equity Pledge and check out the #EqualPayCA Resources developed by the Commission’s Pay Equity Task Force.
