Join us as we highlight Black Women’s Equal Pay Day on August 13, 2020.
You may recall that March 31, 2020, was National Women’s Equal Pay Day. This day represents the extra labor time required to close the wage gap experienced by women to that of their white male counterparts – 78 cents to every $1, respectively. For African American women the income gap is even wider, 64 cents to the dollar representing an additional approximately six months of extra work to reach wage parity. We invite you or your organization to partner with us as we highlight and support Black Women’s Equal Pay Day on August 13, 2020.
