Notwithstanding different regulations such as quotas, companies themselves have learned that gender diversity helps them achieve better results. Various scientific studies, at the university level and in various consulting and accounting firms, have begun examining this topic over the past 3 years. One of the most recognised is the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington,…Continue

You know what that means, right?
It's Equal Pay Day. (Please, you know I didn't mean that that 4/20)
