Workshop 1

Bad Clam or Rotten Bushel – Rethinking ‘Systemic’ Pay Equity
Daniel Kuang (Biddle), David Garber (DCI), Paul McGovern (Praxis Compliance), Robert LaJeunesse (OFCCP)

Identifying and addressing systemic pay equity issues is critical to the success of women, people of color, and employers. Current strategies, tending to search for specific instances of bias, fail to recognize the systemic perspective.    A panel of experts, representing both OFCCP and the contractor community, will share some simple, yet powerful, “Pattern Analysis” techniques that will empower attendees to distinguish the systemic from the non-systemic, detect systemic pay inequities, and address such patterns comprehensively.
