Balance the Scales

Equal pay for equal work. The same opportunities for women as men. A fair and welcoming workplace. Gender equality has made great strides around the world, but surprisingly, in the United States, the growth in female leadership has stalled, pay disparity persists, work life accommodations are few, and traditional stereotypes remain.

To change these practices, we must balance the scales. Knowledge and education are first steps in changing perceptions and creating real and lasting impact in hiring practices, salaries, benefits, advancement, and importantly, organization culture.

We Practice What We Preach

Women comprise the majority of senior leadership at Arizona State University’s W. P. Carey School of Business, including Dean Amy Hillman. Our leadership and faculty members serve as progressive role models and mentors to our students. They inspire in the classroom, innovate in their fields, and invigorate our community. And our school is renowned for its research in areas like leadership, teams, performance management, and strategy.
