Invitation, July 28, 2021
In the shadow of some backsliding during the Corona pandemic, there has been some encouraging momentum for fair pay over the past year: Different laws on pay transparency have been decided upon as in Switzerland, France or the United Kingdom. The European Commission published its long-awaited draft directive on pay transparency, which will make companies more accountable. And the European Court of Justice just recently ruled in favor of fair pay, especially specifying on the principle of equal pay for work of equal value.
After more than a year of facing exceptional challenges, it is time to bring these discussions together and to bundle them: We therefore kindly invite all actors and interested parties to participate in the International Pay Transparency Conference.
On this occasion, we have once again teamed up with the Equal Pay International Coalition, and with the support of the Berlin office of the International Labour Organization, we will bring together international speakers and experts on fair pay.
We cordially invite all parties involved to join this conversation and exchange their ideas on fair pay with European and international leaders from states, civil society, and companies.
Additionally, all participants will have the opportunity to share and network with other interested parties and experts via wonder.me.
When? Wednesday, July 28, 2021, 3 pm CET / 9 am EST – 6 pm CET / 12 am EST
The International Pay Transparency Conference will be hosted in English.
