Today we’re talking about the economics of women and what we can do to bridge the gender pay gap.


The gender pay gap has been a very real issue in the workplace for years, and it seems like we are finally starting to bring more awareness to this problem. The individuals that are willing to take a stand and be uncomfortable while we address the reality of this matter are the ones that will create positive change for women all over the world.

Financial advisor, Cheri Blair, joins me to provide insight into what's actually going on with the economics of women in the world today and what can we do to create necessary change so that that situation improves. She shares factors contributing to the gender wage gap and how women and minorities can work towards a system that delivers equal pay for equal work.
