Gender Equity

California Equal Pay Pledge

What is the California 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 (CCSWG) to help close the pay gap in California, with a recognition that more work needs to be done to address the wage gap facing women of color in particular. Policies that ensure equal pay for all Americans help businesses attract the strongest talent, boost productivity, and benefit our economy. By signing the California Equal Pay Pledge, signatories agree to:
(1) Conduct an annual, company-wide gender pay analysis,
(2) Review hiring and promotion procedures to reduce unconscious bias and structural barriers, and (3) Promote best practices to close the pay gap.
