A Nebraska state senator says she is holding town hall meetings to talk with women about barriers to success in business including an income gap between men and women.
Sen. Amanda McGill has scheduled a meeting Tuesday at Omaha Security National Bank and another on Wednesday at the YWCA in Grand Island. A third meeting will be Oct. 24 at St. Paul's Methodist Church in Lincoln.
McGill says she will examine barriers that face women as they struggle to reach their professional goals.
The town hall meetings will give women a chance to share their personal experiences with McGill on a variety of issues, including wage disparity, the balance of work and family, lack of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, and self-confidence roadblocks.
