Take a look at the clock tower, do you notice anything?  The two clocks represent a subtle difference, yet there is a difference.  It is normal to expect accurate time on all sides of the clock tower.  To me, this is analogous to men and women doing the same job with the same/similar skills, education and qualifications.  It’s logical to expect them to be paid the same yet that is not the case.  Having spent nearly thirty years in the pharmaceutical industry, I can tell you the gender pay gap is not openly talked about.  Largely because the problem is subtle, like the image of the two clocks.  In professional settings, it may be harder to see pay differences but it exists.  From my own personal experience, as well as the research I’ve done, the gender pay gap exists at all levels.


Hello, my name is Shawn Pelletier, I am a Gender Equity Consultant and a Certified Diversity Professional (NDCCDP).   My passion for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) came from a 28-year career working for global, multicultural, pharmaceutical companies.  I pivoted in my career to follow my passion and now I focus my energy by partnering with organizations to elevate their environment through a different lens.  My approach to this work integrates both theory and practical experience from being a department leader, manager of people, and integrator who designed and implemented global process changes.
