Columbus Women's Commission 'Achieving Pay Equity' Commitment Signing Event

A packed ball room at the Columbus Downtown YWCA hosted the Columbus Women's Commission 'Achieving Pay Equity' Commitment Signing event on November 2, 2017.  Over 60 businesses, including the City of Columbus, have signed forms pledging their commitment to advance and enforce gender pay equity and spread awareness related to how race and other factors create even larger pay disparities in the workplace.  The event was designed to challenge and encourage others to sign commitments and to raise awareness of the unique challenges facing women in the workplace. First Lady Shannon Ginther is Chair of the Columbus Women's Commission. She was supported by her husband, Mayor Andrew J. Ginther, along with members of Columbus City Council; Priscilla Tyson, Jaiza Page and Michael Stinziano.
