#3 - Reducing Italy's pay gap by 7% by 2026

We've pulled this—one of our early episodes—from the archives as a backgrounder on Italy's gender equality strategy, equal pay law, and voluntary certification. Enjoy!

Italy, the country with the lowest participation of women in the labor market is finally making progress. In 2021, then-Prime Minister Draghi set ambitious goals for pay equity: The administration aimed to drive down the unadjusted pay gap from 17% to 10% by 2026. But how is Italy going to do it? And how will these changes impact employers?

The measures underscoring these gender equality goals are, too, ambitious: They aim to drive up the percentage of companies run by women from 22% to 30% over those five years. Alongside this, they are encouraging women to develop IT-oriented skills and have placed restrictions on whom you can hire with European funds to increase the hiring of young women.

In 2022, Italy made major changes to speed the rate of progress: They signed a new equal pay law consistent with the National Strategy for gender equality for the years 2021-2026, which includes mandatory reporting. Alongside this, Italy launched a voluntary Equal Pay Certification to promote greater gender equality in the workplace. Its designers hope that it will result in more women in the workforce (including upper management), improve work-life balance, and decrease workplace stereotyping, discrimination, and abuse.

#48 - Are U.S. Pay Transparency Laws Working?

In our first Coffee Talk after a short summer pause, Dr. David Ryberg Anderson joins Margrét to discuss his recent research into the efficiency of pay transparency laws in the United States. Are employers complying in these States by posting salary ranges with job advertisements? Listen to the Coffee Talk to get the how, why, when, and what.

#47 -  Proactively Monitoring Bias in HR Tools

In this week's coffee talk, Henrike and Margrét followup on questions raised in Episode 46 about the applications of AI in HR. AI can make us faster and more efficient in some ways—speeding manual, tedious tasks, for example—but, if we aren't careful, biases can slip in and catch us off guard. Watch this coffee talk to learn about proactively monitoring AI tools in HR.
