It is International Women’s Day!
$1m Wages Lost: The Gender Pay Gap Exposed in Episode One of Chasing Grace Project.
U of O grad, and reTHINKit Founder, Jennifer Cloer, is shooting part one of her docu-series, “Chasing Grace” in Portland this week, and took some time out from filming to talk to the Portland Business Journal .
The Chasing Grace Project, is a six-part documentary series “that brings together a community that is creating change for women in tech – – right now” and is an initiative to give a voice to women in tech and to keep the conversation going as a way to create change.
The premiere screening for The Chasing Grace Project Episode One: Eighty Twenty, which will take place March 25, 2018 at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, Oregon. Tickets are free but space is limited. Please reserve your ticket today at this link.
While the women’s movement is experiencing a renaissance, a clear indicator of progress is equal pay for equal work and access to opportunity. But the average gender pay gap across industries is stagnant at 20 percent and the climb to leadership positions remains a grueling one for many women. Eighty Twenty will explore through personal stories the impact of the pay and gender gap on women in tech, a gap that was supposed to be closed long ago. As demonstrated in the Project trailer, the episode will witness how women are facing adversities such as this in tech and rising above them, making change and charting successful careers.
