Why work with employers?

Vermont employers are key to advancing women’s economic opportunity. From the start, we’ve understood the critical role that employers can play in moving the needle for women: by recruiting and hiring them; by promoting them; by paying them equitably; by consistently considering whether organizational practices, policies, and the culture support the needs of diverse workers. You can make gender equity a priority in your workplace by addressing the low-hanging fruit – we’ll connect you with the tools and resources to do take action.
