Together with our fellow Montanans and the Equal Pay for Equal Work Task Force, we pledge to close Montana's wage gap. As a Montana business and member of the community, we believe that businesses play a critical role in closing the pay gap and commit ourselves to removing visible and invisible barriers to women's advancement, and positioning Montana as an equal pay leader state.
