Fair Pay Political Roundtable
11 March, 16h30-18h30
Permanent Mission of the Federal Republic of Germany to the United Nations 871 United Nations Plaza, New York, NY 10017, USA


In the context of the 64th session of the UN Commission of the Status of Women, PES Women teams up with the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), Jean-Jaurès Foundation and FPI Fair Pay Innovation Lab in order to host the 2nd Fair Pay Political Roundtable in New York.

The Fair Pay Political Roundtable will address how to deal with legislations enshrining fair pay principles. Equal pay for equal work and work of equal value has been high on the international agenda, as the UN Human Rights Council Resolution on equal pay and the engagement of the Equal Pay International Coalition (EPIC) demonstrates. There are a variety of countries who are rapidly progressing in fair pay legislation. But how can individuals use these laws to ensure fair pay for themselves, in their organizations or private environment? Experts from policy-making, NGOs, and academia will exchange on legislative approaches across the world and evaluate these approaches in how far they are practically supporting citizens in overcoming the gender wage gap.
