The recent global movements highlighting racial inequality and injustice have refocused attention on wage disparity and representation issues in the workplace. With legislation beginning to emerge for race and ethnicity pay gap reporting – and a growing awareness of the issue from employees and other stakeholders – now is the time to start preparing to analyze compensation data by race and ethnicity.

CURO and legal experts from Trusaic and Eversheds Sutherland discuss the status of race and ethnicity pay gap reporting legislation in the US and the UK, and the key steps you can take to understand and resolve race and ethnicity pay gaps within your own organization.
