CALIFORNIA EQUAL PAY PLEDGE
First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls, and the California Partners Project are challenging businesses to take the California Equal Pay Pledge!
The California Equal Pay Pledge is an initiative to help close the pay gap in California. Policies that ensure equal pay for all Americans can help businesses attract and retain the strongest talent and boost productivity. Join over 150 companies who have already signed on to a more equitable future and an economy that works for everyone.
We are committed to taking action to close the gender pay gap.
By signing the Equal Pay Pledge, we acknowledge that pay discrimination is not just a women’s issue, but also harms families and the state’s economy. We understand that our business plays a crucial role in promoting a culture of pay equity.
By signing your company commits to:
- Conduct an annual internal company-wide gender pay analysis;
- Review hiring and promotion processes and procedures to reduce unconscious bias and structural barriers to equality; and
- Promote equal pay best practices, such as increased pay transparency, training on retaliation protections, and training for supervisors and managers on pay equity laws.
*The Commission does not conduct an audit of findings. Companies are encouraged to engage in discussions with the Commission and their Equal Pay Pledge partners. Tools, resources, and best practices will be shared on our website, and signatories will be invited to voluntarily participate and attend webinars and other learning opportunities.
Thank you for taking the pledge and for being an Equal Pay Pledge Champion! Please check your email for a message from EqualPay@women.ca.gov to confirm receipt of your signature and to receive additional information. Welcome to the #EqualPayCA community!
