100% Talent Strike Out The Gap

Watching the success of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team in their World Cup victory was exhilarating for many of us. It also thrust the gender wage gap conversation into the spotlight once again, with both national and global coverage. Has this created a moment of change, or is it a very different conversation outside of the sports arena? Best practices to attract and retain female talent are applicable across all industries and professions, and the need to recognize the systemic factors that contribute to the wage gap in both sport and business is more prevalent than ever. What is the conversation like at your workplace?

Recognizing the power of learning from one another, at our September roundtable we’ll have table hosts from sports, entertainment, business and technology who will lead a facilitated discussion. They’ll provide their own experiences and insight, and will be asking for yours as well. Post discussion, we’ll enjoy an evening of baseball and networking courtesy of 100% Talent signatory, The Seattle Mariners.
