Reducing the Gender Wage Gap: Getting Parental Leave Right

DEIB Business Solutions Summit

90% of the gender wage gap is attributable to parenthood, which stalls and often derails the careers of birthing people. How a company addresses — or doesn’t address — employees welcoming a new child will dictate career outcomes for years to come, and it’s easy for employers to get it wrong. Join Dirk Doebler, former CFO, founder and CEO of Parento, the first and only provider for paid parental leave insurance, to discuss best practices to craft a holistic paid parental leave policy and approach for working parents. Equitable parental leave policies can not only retain birthing people in the workforce, but support them on their career paths, while still considering budget concerns.
