Women United Discusses Gender Equality in Business

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

Women make about 77 cents for every dollar men earn, according to a U.S. Census report from 2012. Thursday in Charlottesville, members of the group Women United met to discuss what they call gender equality in business.

They specifically invited men to be on the panel, because that is the missing voice in the conversation.

“We found it fascinating that sometimes one perception is not another's perception and also the concept that it may not matter how you get to successful performance, what matters is successful performance,” said Sue Friedman, a member of Women United.

Women United is a Charlottesville and Albemarle County group that formed in 2006.
