Action – Parental Leave

A- A A+

  • Data from other countries shows that family supporting workplace policies help reduce the gender pay gap when parents of all genders use them.
  • Learn about the parental leave policy at your place of employment, and ask your employer about adopting parental leave rather than maternity leave.
  • Start a conversation with coworkers, friends, and/or family members about how parental leave policy helps reduce disparities faced by women in the workplace – when men are also able to take parental leave, employers are less likely to consider the family status of women in hiring and wage decisions.
