Just Compensation: Closing the Gender Gap Webinar
September 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
About the webinar: The Church lives out its identity as a just and caring community when it compensates ministers fairly. But what is fair? What are the contextual realities that impact compensation? What are the societal and ecclesiastical realities related to gender equity? Data in Living by the Gospel show a clear distinction continues to exist between average salaries for men and women across all pastoral positions and congregation sizes.
Join Rev. Lori Neff LaRue to review current compensation realities and specific financial considerations for women, and explore how female ministers can negotiate compensation packages and advocate more effectively for themselves and others. Lori also will discuss the roles Committees on Ministry (COMs), presbytery executives, and Pastor Nominating Committees (PNCs) can play in covenanting terms of call — with an eye toward making the Church a more just and equitable community in which to respond to God’s call — and how Living by the Gospel, along with other denominational resources, can be utilized to equip individuals and decision-making bodies.
