2020 Equal Pay Days

August 13, 2020 is Black Women's Equal Pay Day. That means black women have to work all of 2019 and until August 13 in 2020 to catch up with what white men earned in 2019 alone. Regardless of their occupation, level of education, or years of experience, women are still paid less than men. 


On August 13, 2020, join the annual Black Women Women's Equal Pay Day Commemoration Project for a panel discussion featuring leading experts and tune into the first episode of the second season of the podcast, Conversations for Equal Pay.

During this event, you will learn more about the black women's pay gap, what different organizations are doing to tackle this issue, and the various steps you can take to make a difference.
