April 21, 2017

BABY, YOU’RE A RICH MAN: Two years after passing a law to expand the state’s equal-pay protections, California lawmakers are keeping the conversation about the gender wage gap going with a series of hearings on its causes and solutions. The Senate Select Committee on Women and Inequality, {chaired by Sen. Holly J. Mitchell), the Senate Labor Committee, the California Legislative Women’s Caucus and the California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls will jointly host a review of “implicit bias,” the subconscious prejudices we may unknowingly harbor, and how it affects women in the workplace, 10 a.m. at the Rose Hills Auditorium in Los Angeles.
