Please join us for “Untangling Pay Transparency Laws,” a talk by Kenan Institute Distinguished Fellow Ricardo Perez-Truglia, associate professor of economic analysis and policy at the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business.

The hourlong event will take place at 12:30 p.m. EDT Thursday, April 20, in the Kenan Center 3rd floor boardroom.

Perez-Truglia will summarize the latest research, including his own, to provide a better understanding of the effectiveness of pay transparency laws. Such policies are increasingly popular among governments across the world and in states such as Colorado, California and Washington, plus cities like New York City, which have all enacted their own laws requiring employers to list salary ranges on job postings. Proponents argue that salary transparency will help combat historical pay gaps experienced by people of color and women, but response has been mixed because of ambiguities and variations in the laws.

Perez-Truglia is a member of the 2023 class of Kenan Institute Distinguished Fellows. Together they comprise an exemplary set of global scholars committed to leveraging their individual expertise, thought leadership, research and networks to further the institute’s efforts to examine and drive solutions to issues facing business and the economy today. This year’s class will support the institute’s 2023 grand challenge: “Workforce Disrupted: Seeking the Labor Market’s Next Equilibrium.”

The event is free and open to the public but registration is required, as lunch will be provided for all attendees.
