On average, Latinx women suffer from a 45 percent pay gap. Studies state that Latinas lose over $1 million dollars in a lifetime which impacts their day to day spending and savings. Aside from working the entire previous calendar year, October 21st, represents how far into 2021,a Latinx woman must work to earn what a white non-Hispanic male made in the 2020 year alone. Gender and race equality and equity are critical in organizations that want to perform at the highest level.

Through www.latinasequalpayday.org, Women of Color in the Workplace works to provide visibility and a voice to Latinx women's experiences.

Join us on October 21st from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm eastern for a discussion about the experiences of Latinas at work and what we can do as women of color, allies, leaders, and companies to close the pay gap ONCE AND FOR ALL.

In partnership with The Latinista
