MA has the opportunity to start thinking differently about women -- and recognize their incredible value to long-term business success at every age and stage. We need to throw away our assumptions and create more established and systematic pathways for women to both off-ramp as well as on-ramp back into the workforce, with compensation keyed to performance vs. driven by gender.
Addie Swartz, CEO, reacHIRE

Research clearly shows that diversity in management results in companies that perform better. With this business case for having women in leadership positions, closing the wage gap becomes critical for keeping women in the workforce and available for leadership! Signing the 100% Talent Compact reinforces that this is an important issue to Nitsch Engineering, and allows us to be a part of the solution.
Lisa Brothers, CEO, Nitsch Engineering
Knowing Massachusetts is first to the table with its Massachusetts Pay Equity Law, organizations can use the opportunity to educate leaders about your own ‘gender gap’ and ensure that self-evaluation becomes routine. Pay transparency IS the business case we all need to begin closing the gap.
Robin Antonellis, Senior Director of Compensation and Benefits, Dana Farber Cancer Institute
