Empowering Women

At Press Ganey, Mel made sure that equal pay for equal work was not just a goal; it was the standard.

In Congress, Mel will fight for pay equity. Indiana has one of the largest gender pay gaps in the country, with Hoosier women earning just 74 cents for each dollar men make. Mel knows that equal pay for equal work is not just a talking point, but a necessity. Mel will push for guaranteed paid family leave, so that women are not forced to choose between their jobs or raising a family. It is long past time that women and men were given the same opportunities to advance in the workplace.
