Over 50% of the population in Franklin County are women, and in Central Ohio, one in four women are economically insecure (1). Those are just a few examples of why the Columbus Women’s Commission is focused on the issue of the gender pay gap and has launched The Columbus Commitment: Achieving Pay Equity. Columbus is on the cusp of being a top-tier American city, attracting and retaining top-tier talent. With your commitment to help the region alleviate gender-based inequities, we guarantee Columbus will remain competitive in business and open to opportunities for everyone. Together, we can change the story for women, families and our entire community in Columbus.

We hope you’ll join us in signing The Columbus Commitment: Achieving Pay Equity.
