Mrs. Wright is frequently engaged in class action employment discrimination matters where she designs and implements statistical analyses that model the employer’s processes to assess equity in pay, promotions, performance, hiring, and attrition that assist counsel in developing a strategic defense. She draws on this experience when assisting employers in proactive assessments of pay equity and in preparing cents on the dollar analyses intended for public disclosure.

Mrs. Wright assists federal contractors in assessing and managing their OFCCP risk. Employers come to Mrs. Wright when they need an economist to assess potential exposure and/or to communicate the statistical model to the Agency.

In the diversity arena, she actively maintains a dynamic web-based tool which monitors D&I analyses for a Fortune 100 company. Quarterly reporting enables top HR executives to compare the company’s diversity of various businesses, functions, pay, and geographic levels of the organization to appropriate internal and external benchmarks determined using both historical internal lines of progression and labor market data which consider industry, education, occupation, and local or national recruitment areas.

Mrs. Wright has presented seminars on the statistical analysis of employment practices to attorneys and human resource professionals. She has been a regular presenter on compensation and diversity topics at SHRM, NELI, and NILG events.
