    Gender Pay Gaps: Organizational Problems Need Organizational Solutions

    March 16, 7:30 UTC  / 18:00 Adelaide, Australia

    For many decades, across a wide range of national contexts and industry sectors, women have earned less than men. Gender pay gaps start early and widen as women’s careers progress, so that women retire with dramatically less financial security than men. Discussions about gender pay gaps often present them as a problem for women in the workforce, but emerging research demonstrates that gender pay gaps are problems for women’s employers too. In this webinar, we’ll demystify gender pay gaps and identify their intertwined causes. We’ll discuss several policy solutions enacted around the world (pay transparency, public accountability, leadership appointments). Spoiler alert: every policy solution has unintended consequences! Practitioners with an appreciation of the challenges associated with gender pay gaps will be better positioned to educate clients, advocate for progressive policies, and stimulate organizational change. 

    Presenter bio:

    Carol T Kulik is a Bradley Distinguished Professor at the University of South Australia, UniSA Business. Carol’s research interests focus on workplace inclusion, with a particular emphasis on gender. Current projects are investigating strategies for closing the gender pay gap, motivating organizations to become gender equality frontrunners, and empowering employees to negotiate better working arrangements in the next normal. Her book, Human Resources for the Non-HR Manager, makes research on human resource management accessible to line managers with no formal training in human resources. Her research on the gender pay gap (with Professor Yoshio Yanadori and Dr Jill Gould) received the 2021 Philip Brown Prize from the Securities Industry Research Centre of Asia-Pacific and was described by the South Australia Chief Scientist as “a CEO must-read.”

    The Hague, The Netherlands, 28 to 30 June 2023, LIFELONG DEVELOPMENT AS A STANDARD

    Noloc, together with Euroguidance and the Open University, is organizing the 45th global IAEVG conference. This will take place from 27 to 30 June 2023 in the World Forum in The Hague. The theme is 'Lifelong development as a standard'. Do you want to contribute content? You can respond to the 'Call for Papers' by 30 December at the latest.

    We are very happy to welcome you to the International IAEVG conference. Lifelong development as a standard is not jus a theme - it is what we aim for, a goal as well as a very needed future. We invite you to join us and participate, collaborate and innovate on topics that matter.

    On behalf of Noloc, the Dutch Association of Guidance Counsellors, we would like to welcome you to our conference on June 28-30, 2023. The theme of the conference is Life Long Development as a standard. The labor market is changing rapidly. Old professions dissapear, new ones take their place and are developing faster and faster. People need to adapt at a pace that matches those developments. Also challenges like sustainability and climate change requires that people constantly acquire new knowledge and skills. The key is to stay on top of these developments by learning and development.

    The World Economic Forum indicates that 85 million jobs will be lost worldwide by 2025 due to technology. The 97 million new jobs that will replace them demand different new skills for employees, so investing in learning and development is crucial. In short, it is the pursuit of a positive and self-evident learning culture.

    Where do our educational and vocational guidance counsellors find themselves in all this? How can we deal with the current situation, and what will it be like in the future? What are the challenges facing us? What will be demanded of us in the future? Our conference in The Hague Welcome promises to be an interesting international meeting on a social, cultural, and intellectual level. Where the sharing of knowledge, thoughts and ideas contributes to the career professional of the future.

    The conference is an excellent opportunity to make relevant research or an innovative case study in our beautiful field visible. Anyone who wants to contribute to the content of the conference can respond to the 'Call for Papers'. This document can be found on the conference site. Each proposal should have a clear link to scientific research and/or innovative practices and an important link to the theme or one of the sub-themes of the conference.
