Pay Equity 2.0: Looking Beyond Just Pay Adjustments
Erin Connell (Orrick), Laura Mitchell (Jackson Lewis)

The importance of developing compliant and competitive compensation systems that attract and retain top talent while withstanding legal challenges, OFCCP audits and EEOC investigations has never been greater.  In this session, two thought leaders in the pay equity field will discuss (1) best practices for equitable and transparent compensation systems, (2) meaningful ways to analyze for pay equity at the group and individual level, and (3) practical advice for promoting pay equity internally and externally.
