The Council is a first-in-the-nation, public-private partnership. Businesses pledge to take concrete, measurable steps to eliminate the wage gap in their company.
The Boston Women’s Workforce Council (BWWC) is a public-private partnership between the City of Boston and over 250 Boston-area companies dedicated to closing the gender wage gap, leveraging encryption technology developed by data scientists at BU’s Hariri Institute.
The BWWC Data Fellow will help the BWWC Team ensure success in its 2019 pay gaps measurement process. For reference, please review our 2017 Report.
Please send resume with cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Data Analysis: In September 2019, the BWWC will receive aggregate pay data from as many of the 200+ prior and new signers of the 100% Talent Compact as we can train and process.
