October 28, 2021
Average Rating


The staffing industry, like many others, faces a challenge: women and people of color generally earn less than white men do for the same work. During this webinar, Leslie Vickrey of ClearEdge Marketing will facilitate a panel discussion including such participants as Eric Gregg of ClearlyRated, an ASA corporate partner—he’ll review data on the pay inequity in the industry, including survey findings that show that pay inequity increases as women rise within the staffing industry. Vickrey, Gregg, and senior executives in the staffing industry will discuss trends in pay and how the industry can do better to improve the pay gap between men and women in staffing.

During this webinar, attendees will learn

  • Why pay inequity might exist in the industry, and what leaders can do to combat it
  • Why pay inequity gets worse as women move into more senior roles
  • How women can speak up about pay equity within their firms
  • What responsibility c-suite executives have, and how they can address pay equity within their own firms


Facilitated by: Leslie Vickrey, chief executive officer and founder, ClearEdge Marketing
Panelists: Eric Gregg, CEO, ClearlyRated
Sunny Ackerman, president—Americas, Specialist Staffing Solutions Inc.
Melissa Byington, Chief Sales Officer, Supplemental Healthcare
