The Coalition is growing with new members representing governments, workers' organizations, employers' organizations and private sector, civil society and academia. The Coalition is led by the International Labour Organization, UN Women and the OECD. It provides a platform for peer-to-peer exchanges, capacity building and technical advisory services. It produces data and monitors trends in respect of the gender pay and the policies to curb discrimination in pay.
