Can anything be done to close the sad and enormous wage gap between women and men? Actually, based on what I heard at the Inclusion By Design: Equal Pay Day conference in New York City recently (Equal Pay Day), yes.

The speakers at the conference (from a nonprofit for women 50+ in the workplace, known as amazing.community), ranged from a Harvard researcher to an AARP public policy expert to a whiz on negotiating pay. None of them believed the wage gap could vanish anytime soon. But they did suggest steps that women, employers and the government could take to lessen the disparity.
