NeXXtRead: Pay Equity

  • CUDC 1309 Euclid Avenue Cleveland, OH, 44115 United States (map)

This installment of the NeXXt Read - where individuals read an article and emulate the “book club” model - will investigate gender pay equity within architectural practice is sponsored by Air Control.  Jeanne Gang (Founder, Studio Gang) notes in her recent article for Fast Company that pay is the "fundamental issue of respect in the workplace" and while pay gaps are still prevalent in architectural practice, "...it's the simplest component of workplace inequity to fix: it's a math problem." 

Join the conversation to discuss how to identify gender pay inequity and consider strategies and ways of thinking to address it and/or approach the subject with those in your firm who can.  Our discussion will be facilitated by Jeff Meyers, AIA, (Principal, DS Architecture)  and Malaz Elgemiabby, Assoc. AIA (Designer, RLB+A).
