Kentucky Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs, Inc.

The Giraffe Award

To the Local Organization that “Sticks Its Neck Out”

The Giraffe Award was established in February 2003 to encourage continued advocacy toward the Kentucky Federation’s major focus…pay equity. To this end, the Federation took the issue of pay equity back to the grassroots…the State, Cities and Counties. Kentucky Federation members are encouraged to recognize and acknowledge Equal Pay Day on April 4, 2017 with high-profile activities including securing Equal Pay Day proclamations, writing letters to the editor, lobbying for equal pay legislation on the state level, and encouraging employers to conduct equal pay self-audits.

A point system has been set up to aid in both submitting the report and judging.

For further information, contact Mimi Becker, KFBPW Vice President.

Submission deadline: May 19, 2017
