The event included a first-time award ceremony recognizing women leaders from local chapters.
Barrington discussed the topic of pay equity, the gains women have made, and the gaps that still remain.
Several of the known factors contributing to pay inequality are hours worked, experience, education, industry, occupation, level in hierarchy, union status, and demographics.
