Gender Pay Equity

This dashboard is a tool for the community that provides transparent gender pay equity information for companies seeking to do business with Bernalillo County, the City of Albuquerque, and the Water Authority. These companies are required to comply with the Gender Pay Equity Initiative which seeks to close the gender wage gap by completing the Pay Equity Form. Companies with 0% pay gap between male and female employees earn a certificate and 5% preference in competitive solicitations.

Gender Pay Equity Initiative

The Gender Pay Equity Initiative was developed as a collaborative partnership between Bernalillo County, the City of Albuquerque, and the Water Authority. This initiative requires companies to report gender pay disparities in their organization and rewards organizations that pay men and women equitably with a 5% preference in competitive solicitations (RFPs and RFBs).

Watch this short video to learn about the data and how to navigate the Pay Equity Dashboard.
