2022-2023

The 2022-2023 Pink Tank program examines how gender pay-gap issues overlap or differ across geographic regions, how we can navigate these challenges and implement solutions to them.

The program’s final challenge involves small collaborative student teams that were asked to identify and obtain key data sources related to salary by gender for different occupations and industries. They then propose unique and present institutional and individual solutions and innovations that South Florida area businesses can implement.
