VOICES FROM THE FUTURE OF WORK

True digital transformation is about transforming people and processes, not technology and tools. In this getTogether series, you'll hear from executives, entrepreneurs and educators navigating – and often shaping – the future of work.

EPISODE V: The Future of Pay Equity

The Future of Pay Equity
In this episode, we’re talking with Maria Colacurcio, CEO of Syndio, and previously co-founder of Smartsheet. Maria explains the shortcomings of the outdated way that most companies still analyze pay equity, as well as how important it is to look beyond just salaries by updating job titles, hiring practices, job descriptions and more to get to a more diverse and equitable company. Maria also shares her own experience with the “motherhood penalty” of returning to the workforce after raising kids, despite a track record that already included co-founding a company that went public.
