About The Pay Equity Project

In the United States, full-time women workers still earn a median of only 80 cents for every dollar men earn.  The numbers are even worse for women of color.  For example, Hispanic women earn a median of only 55 cents for every dollar white men earn, and Black women earn a median of only 63 cents.  The Pay Equity Project at UCI Law works to reduce the gender and race pay gap through education, advocacy, and collaborations with other stakeholders fighting for pay equity.


Senior Associate Dean and Professor Trilby Robinson-Dorn is the Founder and Director of The Pay Equity Project.  Professor Robinson-Dorn teaches and researches in the areas of pay and workplace equity, employment law, and diversity and inclusion.  She is an experienced employment lawyer and former international law firm partner.  Throughout her career, Professor Robinson-Dorn has participated actively in efforts to improve the status of women in the workplace, including as President of King County Washington Women Lawyers, as an ACLU of Washington Board and Executive Committee Member and Cooperating Attorney handling women’s and children’s rights cases, on the K&L Gates Women in the Profession Committee, and in administrative leadership roles at UC Irvine School of Law.  Professor Robinson-Dorn is passionate about fighting for gender pay equity.
