On average, women are paid just 80 cents to a white male’s dollar. For Asian American women it's 85 cents, for black women it's 61 cents, for native women, it's 58 cents and Latinas, 53 cents.

Leading up to November 20th, Latinas Equal Pay Day, the podcast series, Conversations for Equal Pay was launched on August 22nd, 2019, Black Women’s Equal Pay Day to kick off the inaugural  Black Women’s Equal Pay Day Commemoration Project. To elevate the conversation around the pay gap impacting women of color, we are keeping the conversation going. A new episode is released biweekly. Stay tuned to our special edition episode in conjunction with the Latinas Equal Pay Day Commemoration Project.

The Conversations for Equal Pay podcast series promotes leadership advice from women of color who reached the top of their industries to inspire other women who believe in the importance of closing the pay gap. We hope to send the message that women of color are making significant strides in various industries, yet their visibility, voices, and experiences are crucial to global change.

This program is in collaboration with Lean In Illinois, Lean In Michigan, Lean In Latina Surge and Lean In St. Louis.
