2019 Testimony on Minimum Wage and Pay Transparency - Louisiana State Senate Broadcast Archives
The Office of Governor John Bel Edwards in partnership with United Way of Southeast Louisiana hosted the 2017 Equal Pay Summit at the Shaw Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, March 10th. UWSELA Chief Operating Officer, Charmaine Caccioppi, serves as Chair of Governor Edwards' Louisiana Women's Policy and Research Commission while Kim Sport, UWSELA Public Policy Chair served as the co-chair of the Equal Pay Summit.
Hundreds were in attendance to participate in the discussion, which included panels comprised of business leaders and state representatives hoping to improve the condition of pay equity in our state. We believe that equitable pay is not only good for business, but critical for families who bear the additional burden when an increasing number of women are the sole breadwinner in a household. We must step up to the challenge and change to status quo in accordance with our Blueprint for Prosperity and United Against Poverty Public Policy Agenda.
