About

Founded by Lean In Women of Color, Women of Color in the Workplace introduces the second annual Black Women's Equal Pay Day Commemoration Project. The Black Women's Equal Pay Day Project is a sister project of the Latinas Equal Pay Day Commemoration Project which launched on Latinas Equal Pay Day, November 2nd, 2017, a landmark date which marked how long it took for Latinas to make what a white, non-Hispanic male made in 2016. The pay gap hasn't improved for ANY group of women of color. In fact, it's widening. For instance, in 2017, the pay gap for Black women was 34 percent. This year it's widened to 38 percent. With a mission to dispose of the pay gap for Black Women, Women of Color in the Workplace features interviews with black women leaders who believe in reaching back and offering advice to others. We hope that our programming sends the message that black women are making significant strides in various industries, yet their visibility, voices, and experiences are crucial to global change.
