In order to sound out new strategies for the future labor market, we work together with a large network of experts who share their knowledge, experience, and vision with us. These include entrepreneurs and scientists, and politicians and government representatives from Germany and around the world. This cooperation forms the foundation of our work.
Many of our partners belong to associations, institutions, or organizations. In contrast, we as a non-profit limited liabilities company, are independent of any party, association, or trade union. In other words, we act neutrally, and we support all actors on the labor market.
Here are some of the organizations with whom we cooperate:
EPIC - Equal Pay International Coalition
In order to implement wage justice on a global, national, and regional basis, three formidable partners – the ILO, the OECD, and UN Women – have joined forces to form the Equal Pay International Coalition, or EPIC, for short. After the Fair Pay Innovation Lab hosted the first ever stakeholder meeting at the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women, and Youth in Berlin in the summer of 2017, we have been a Coalition member ourselves since autumn 2018.
The "Diversity Charter" was implemented in our organization with the aim of creating a working environment free from prejudice. All employees should be appreciated – regardless of gender, nationality, ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age, sexual orientation, or identity. The recognition and promotion of these diverse potentials creates economic advantages for our organization.
Cliché Free Initiative
One of the biggest hurdles to the achievement of wage justice are the clichés embedded in our minds. These do not only continue to wield influence on the course of our careers, but often play a decisive role in the choice of profession as well. The Cliché Free Initiative supports girls and boys in finding professions that fit their strengths, interests, and life plans, free from gender stereotypes. The aim is to provide guidance on career and study choices nationwide in Germany that entirely upholds the principle of gender equality.
What experience do other companies have of sustainable pay structures? How are they preparing for the new law on pay transparency?
Best Practice Wanted
We are firmly convinced that pay equity could be possible tomorrow – if everyone wanted it. That is demonstrated by those companies where things are already fair(er).
Fair Pay Management Circle
Our concern lies in the practical implementation of pay equity in everyday business operations. But how does a sustainable pay strategy succeed, and does it ultimately pay?
