Join the Conversation on August 7th!



On average, women make just $.80 (cents) compared to white non-Hispanic men. The pay disparity widens for women of color. Black/African American women are making $.63 (cents) to the dollar. This means that a black woman must work 8 extra months in the 2018 calendar year to make up for what a white man made in just 2017. These extra days of work symbolize Black Women's Equal Pay Day which falls on August 7 this year.

On August 7, Lean In Women of Color Chicago and Chicago Women of Power are coming together for a Black Women’s Equal Pay Day conversation. Join us for a discussion on fair pay—what it looks like to negotiate your worth and what you can do to empower yourself and others!

The conversation will be streamed streamed live via the Lean In Women of Color Facebook Group 
This is a first-come first-serve gathering. In-person RSVPs are limited. 

This is a community initiative of the people of Chicago. In partnership with Women Employed, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago, Women in Digital, Studio B and NAWBO, the program Lean In Women of Color promotes the advancement of women of color in the workplace and society.
