About

Women of Color in the Workplace introduces the 2020 Latinas Equal Pay Day Commemoration Project, an initiative in conjunction with a panel discussion and podcast series, Conversations for Equal Pay which promotes inspiring tips from Latina leaders. This year, we set out on a journey to learn from leaders who reached the top of their industries to discuss the pay gap impacting Latinas. 

The inaugural project launched on Latinas Equal Pay Day, November 2nd, 2017, a landmark date that marked how long it took for Latinas to make what a white, non-Hispanic male made in 2016.  The pay gap hasn't improved over the years. In fact, this year Latinas Equal Pay Day falls on October 29th, 2020. To date, Latinas averaged 54.5 cents to the dollar a white non-Hispanic male makes. Studies state that Latinas lose over $1 million dollars in a lifetime which impacts their day to day spending and savings. 


To dispose of the pay gap and its negative effects on Latinas and their families, The Latinas Equal Pay Day Commemoration Project pledges to fill in the gap with inspiration and strategies 
so that more women of color can thrive

We are proud to introduce this year's roster of fearless, unapologetically ambitious leaders who are persevering every day.

Tune in and listen.
