Boston Women’s Workforce Council
The Boston Women’s Workforce Council (BWWC) is a public-private partnership, between the City of Boston and the Greater Boston business community, that in collaboration with BU aims to close the wage gap and remove barriers to women’s advancement.
Using data‐driven methods, the BWWC works with businesses in a private‐public endeavor to build a more equitable workforce. In collaboration with SAIL, BWWC collects wage data of 100,000+ employees to construct a comprehensive outlook on the wage gap in Boston. The BWWC joined the Institute in 2017.
The Council serves as a resource and thought leader on the gender-based wage gap, in addition to other challenges facing women in today’s workforce. Working both one-on-one and in coalition with our signers and other like-minded organizations, the Council aims to raise consciousness about the disparity between women’s and men’s wages and encourage measurable actions toward women’s full and equal participation in the workforce.Visit Website
