Download the Slides

In most occupations, there is an earnings gap between men and women. In this webinar, we released a brand new study that compares the gender gap in earnings in medicine, law, and dentistry and how things are changing over time. Great expert panelists debated big picture implications, and the audience had plenty of ways to chime in.
