On International Women's Day, we have a responsibility to ask ourselves what more we could be doing to advocate for the women in our lives. It's important for us to take this moment to reflect on the state of gender inequality around the world, because, while progress has been made, it's clear that we still have a long way to go.
At our 2015 Annual Luncheon, Governor Jay Nixon signed equal pay Executive Order 15-09. An executive order (E.O.) is a policy or regulation issued by the Governor, which has the force of law. E.O. 15-09 promotes gender pay equity in the workplace by directing state agencies and encouraging private sector organizations to use best practice guidelines to identify and address gender wage gaps within their organization.
