Vermont took the time to acknowledge Equal Pay Day on April 4 in an event showcasing the newest report from Change The Story VT (CTS), an initiative fueled by the The Vermont Women’s Fund, Vermont Commission on Women, and Vermont Works for Women. The Vermont Women in Leadership report outlines important connections between women’s leadership in political, civic and professional spheres and women’s economic security.  The event featured the Governor signing the Equal Pay Day Proclamation, and featured powerful speakers committed to fast-tracking women’s economic status in state. The speakers presented new data on the participation of women in various leadership roles, including federal, state and municipal government, Abenaki Nations, academia, law enforcement, and the corporate and non-profit sectors.
