Inequality came into sharp focus in 2020 and in the world of business, it’s become clear that we need to come together to create sustainable, impactful change to help wipe out injustice in the workplace. From biases to prejudice, it is this discrimination that drives pay inequity and barriers to entry/progression for minority employees across the talent lifecycle.

For many, conducting a pay equity audit is the starting point to help better understand their workforces. But getting buy-in to carry out pay equity analysis can be challenging - especially with common myths floating around the office and internet. These misconceptions prevent meaningful, positive action.

In this 45-minute session, CURO’s Co-Founder and Senior Consultant, Ruth Thomas, and Reward Consultant, Vicky Peakman, aim to debunk these pay myths.
