What Can I Do?

Our goal is to make sure every woman in Miami-Dade County is paid fairly — women doing the same jobs as men should be paid equally.

We’re looking for leading organizations to join us in a compact to bring pay equity to every workplace.

Signing the Compact gives employers the opportunity to be part of a diverse group of companies – large and small, for-profit and nonprofit – leading the way toward gender pay equity.
