Lucky you! San Francisco is a world-class destination and we look forward to welcoming you at EWIP’s sixth-annual Women’s Leadership Conference. Unfortunately, finding hotel rooms can be tricky, and expensive. We encourage you to look ASAP if you need a place to stay. We do not have one hotel we recommend, but list several options to assist you in your hunt. These are excellent places and close to our venue, The Merchants Exchange Building (directions and map). The conference site is at 465 California Street and only a couple blocks from the Montgomery BART/Muni Station. If you find lodging anywhere in the Bay Area, you can take public transportation. Parking is expensive too, so for locals and out of town guests, public transit is the way to go. Conference check-in begins 8:00 am Thursday, March 6th, with the opening address at 8:45 am. We’ll have coffee and a continental breakfast waiting for you.

The Pew Research Center analyzes Census data and this month reported 10 key findings about the economic realities of women and men in the workplace. The generation entering the workforce today, women in the 25-32 year old age group, have obtained 4-year degrees in higher numbers than men in the same age group and have closed the income gap a few more percentage points. They report women’s earnings are 93% of men’s wages verses 87% for women entering the workforce in 2000. This is considered “near parity”. However, the gains are partly due to falling wages for men, and it is unclear whether the income gap won’t just widen again as their careers advance, which has been the case for women in previous decades.
Women have made dramatic gains since 1980 when the gender pay gap was 67% of men’s wages, but the female workers of today don’t feel any more optimism about their career paths. And compared to men of their generation, are much more likely to say more change is needed to achieve gender equality.
More on how Pew Research measured the gender pay gap.
