25th anniversary Thought Leadership Conversation Series

Throughout our 25th anniversary we will be presenting a series of conversations between leaders in the movement of public interest litigation to help clarify the landscape, the threats and opportunities, and potential areas of focus moving forward.

Equal Pay 3.0: New Frontiers In Combatting The Wage Gap

October 29, 7pm - 9pm | Univ. of California, Berkeley Law School

The third in the series and our final conversation will feature BerkeleyLaw Professor Catherine Albiston, Lori Andrus of Andrus Anderson LLP, and Patricia Shiu, former Director of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) under President Barack Obama.  These trailblazing thinkers have critically examined the wage gap and the workplace patterns that create pay inequality.  In a conversation moderated by Impact Fund Director of Litigation and Training, Lindsay Nako, they will share their thoughts on the intersectional nature of pay gaps, the modern equal pay movement, and the effectiveness of litigation to address these injustices.

We are grateful to present this Thought Leadership Conversation at UC Berkeley School of Law, in association with the Thelton E. Henderson Center for Social Justice and the Civil Justice Research Initiative.
