For every dollar a man earns, on average a woman is paid 25 cents. Based on today’s rate of progress, it will take 202 years for the pay gap to close, according to the World Economic Forum.
In this opening panel senior players from the public and private sector will have an open discussion around the pay gap in institutions. Men and women should have the same economic opportunities all around the world, but despite progress, protests and legislation, there is a persistent gap between what men and women are paid. Panelists will tackle 1) The pay gap situation in Lebanon with insights from the public and private sector, 2) the reasons behind the existence of a persistent pay gap 3) The policies, steps and measures to be taken to bridge this gap in less than 202 years.
