The executive order sets a deadline of Sept. 24, 2021, for the council to develop and submit to the president legislative and policy recommendations to advance gender equity and equality in the United States and around the world.

On International Women’s Day, March 8, President Joseph R. Biden Jr. signed an executive order establishing a White House Gender Policy Council, which may have implications for labor and employment laws under the new administration.

The new council, comprised of nearly every member of the president’s cabinet, is tasked with helping push gender equity on the administration’s domestic and foreign policy efforts.
