Women's Workforce Council
We work with businesses in the Greater Boston area to:
- eliminate the gender-based wage gap
- remove the visible and invisible barriers to women’s advancement, and
- ensure that 100% of the talent pool is used to make Boston the best area in the country for working women.

We released a report detailing our efforts to address the wage gap in Boston.
The council is a public-private collaboration between the City of Boston and Boston University.
The compact is a first-in-the-nation, public-private partnership. Businesses pledge to take concrete, measurable steps to eliminate the wage gap in their company.
Businesses also report their progress and employee demographic and salary data anonymously every two years. More than 185 businesses have signed on, including three Fortune 500 companies, with new signers being added regularly.
The listed companies below have the signed the 100% Talent Compact. They're helping make Greater Boston the premier workplace for women in America by closing the wage gap. They're also removing the visible and invisible barriers to women's advancement.
