Ep. 49: Gender Pay Gaps and Inclusive Brands Don’t Mix. Here’s What to Do About It

Welcome to Inclusion and Marketing, the show that’s all about helping you win the attention, adoration, and loyalty of more consumers, especially those with differences that are often ignored by brands.

I’m your host, Sonia Thompson, a marketer and someone with a lot of differences.

Let’s get to it.

Unfortunately, in 2023 gender pay gaps exist. And worst yet, gender pay gaps exist even more so when you look at the data for women from underrepresented and underserved communities.

These disparities in women’s pay vs. their male counterparts negatively impact belonging for the people on your team, which of course in turn negatively impacts how well they make the customers you serve feel like they belong.

In this episode, I walk you through practical ways you can work on closing the gender pay gap both within your company and within your industry.
