Sports giant Nike has signed the 'White House Equal Pay Pledge' – the first piece of legislation that was enacted by President Barack Obama. The pledge was designed to help close the pay gap between men and women in the USA, where women are said to take home, on average, 79 per cent of what their male colleagues earn.

The White House recently announced 30 new commitments to the pledge which, in addition to Nike, included Apple, Delta Airlines, Facebook, General Motors, Hilton, IBM, Patagonia, Target and Visa. According to Nike, the company is committed to equitable pay and rewarding performance across all roles, for all Nike team members.
