Free ASA Webinar Today—Addressing Pay Inequity in Staffing

Don’t miss the ASA webinar “Pay Inequity in the Staffing Industry—A Panel Discussion, Part Two.” It takes place today from 3 to 4 p.m. Eastern time. 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. Hear from a panel of senior executives about how the industry can do better to improve the pay gap in staffing in the second part of a two-part webinar series. Presented in partnership with the Women’s Business Collaborative, Staffing Industry Analysts, TechServe Alliance, and the National Association of Personnel Services.

All ASA webinars are free for ASA members, and most qualify for continuing education hours toward ASA certification renewal. To learn more and to register, visit
