Welcome to equal pacE


equal pacE - a web tool based equal gender pay analysis for a competitive Europe


What is “equal pacE”?

The project "equal pacE" provides a web tool by which companies can voluntarily identify the causes of a potential gender pay gap. By using the equal pacE web tool, companies get valuable information not only on their pay structures, but also on other relevant issues of human resource management. The equal pacE web tool is available in five languages (English, Finnish, French, Polish and Dutch for its application in Flemish-Belgium and the Netherlands) and adjusted for the country-specific requirements.

Background: Logib-D

The foundations of equal pacE stem from the German Logib-D project. Logib-D stands for “pay equality in companies – Germany” and is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth. Companies are offered an easy-to-use web tool for analysing their pay and personnel structures regarding gender pay inequalities. In addition, a Logib-D-based consulting package for 200 companies was provided by the ministry free of charge. Please see our testimonials above to learn about the benefits of using this web tool.

equal pacE offered train-the-trainer workshops for social partners, multipliers and public authorities in five European countries to accompany the implementation of the equal pacE web tool. The goal was to provide participants with strategies and tools to support their member institutions and the public in attracting and retaining top talent irrespective of gender, and thus contribute to a reduction of the gender pay gap. One focus was on the equal pacE web tool which had been introduced and its usage practiced. The workshops were free of charge.
