Dear Colleagues,

This is a can't miss Roundtable. Please come to hear Dr. Martha Burk inform us about the first state-based contract compliance initiative on pay equity in the nation and hear from the experts about where women's jobs are--and are not--in this recovery. To date women have recovered a smaller share of the jobs they lost than men have. Don't miss this cutting-edge research! Hope to see you on Wednesday, May 11!

All best,
Heidi Hartmann, Ph.D.

President, Institute for Women's Policy Research
