2018 Latinas Equal Pay Day Commemoration Project



The Latinas Equal Pay Day Commemoration Project which launched last year spurred from a mission in honor of Latinas Equal Pay Day which falls on November 1st this year. The date November 1st marks the unfairness of the pay gap and how far into 2018 it takes a woman with Hispanic or Latino heritage to make what a white, non-Hispanic male made in 2017.

The Latinas Equal Pay Day Commemoration Project promotes leadership advice from Latinas to inspire other women in hopes of closing the pay gap. So, this year we asked companies and organizations to partner with the project by nominating a Latina leader at their organization.  Lean In Women of Color, along with numerous Lean In chapters are working together to raise awareness and support for bridging the pay gap that currently exists for Latinas.

To change the narrative on inequalities impacting Latinas, on November 1st, we are launching the 2018 Latinas Equal Pay Day Commemoration Project.

Native American Women's Equal Pay Day



September 27th is Native American Women’s Equal Pay Day. This means it takes almost 10 extra months within the 2018 calendar year for a Native American woman to make what a white male made in 2017 alone. On average, Native American women make just 57 cents to a white man’s dollar. However, as we get closer to Native American Women’s Equal Pay Day, we can't seem to omit a more sensitive issue plaguing Native communities. At a significant rate, indigenous women are exposed to violence and reported missing. 

Native American communities suffer from economic development disadvantages due to geographic isolation. Reported by the Navajo Times, “Native people face disproportionate rates of unemployment, of poverty, and a fairly high incidence of domestic violence.” Thus, Native American women are predisposed to low wages and limited protection and security. Compared to other groups of women, Native American women are ranked among the highest groups that are suffering from insufficient pay making them far more susceptible to the ills of discrimination.
