Equal Pay Day, April 2, 2019

American women lose out on a staggering $500 billion each year because of the gender pay gap according to AAUW.

Milwaukee Women inc is proud to announce the official launch of the Women’s Leadership Collaborative (WLC) on #NationalEqualPayDay alongside Professional Dimensions & TEMPO Milwaukee. As a unified voice to advocate for issues related to equity for all professional women, the #WLCMKE has identified pay equity as a top priority.

This date symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year.

Because women earn less, on average than men, they must work longer for the same amount of pay. The wage gap is even greater for most women of color.
