Welcome to Level the Paying Field where we explore issues related to economics, equity, women, work and money.  This series of conversations explores topics impacting women working in Ontario and is published by Ontario’s Pay Equity Office. 

Part of our inspiration for launching this series was how, in the midst of a global pandemic which disproportionally impacted women around the world, global multilateral organizations came together to inaugurate the first ever International Equal Pay Day on September 18th 2020

This was an initiative led by United Nations members including Australia, Canada, Germany, Iceland, New Zealand, Panama, South Africa and Switzerland with a total of 105 UN member states co-sponsoring the resolution. to establish September 18th as “International Equal Pay Day”.

Through this series, we hope to elevate the equity conversation to make the world a more equitable place for women to work, live, and thrive, and support closing the gender wage gap.
