Boston Women's Workforce Council

The mission of the Boston Women’s Workforce Council, originally formed in April 2013, is to make Greater Boston the premier place for working women in America by closing the gender wage gap and removing the visible and invisible barriers to women’s advancement in today’s working world.

Today, women in Boston make up 52% of the city’s population but earn an average of only 83 cents for every dollar a man earns.

The Council, comprised of female leaders the private sector, academia, non-profit organizations, and labor unions, works with the businesses in the Greater Boston area in a private-public endeavor to ensure that 100% of the talent pool is used to make Boston the best area in the country for working women.
