Today is Equal Pay Day, and adidas and Reebok are coming together and partnering with LeanIn.Org to raise awareness that women on average are paid 20 percent less than men in the United States. adidas is committed to equal pay for all of its employees – male and female.
Equal Pay Day marks how far women had to work into 2018 to catch up to what men earned in 2017 alone. At adidas stores across the country and on adidas.com, we’re asking our consumers to think about the impact of 20 percent less.
“At adidas, we believe that through sport, we have the power to change lives. We’re proud to partner with Lean In to raise awareness that women on average are paid 20% less than men in the United States. Equal pay matters, and by eliminating the gender pay gap, we can improve the lives of women and their families.” Karen Parkin, Chief HR Officer and adidas Executive Board Member.
