Each year, Equal Pay Day is recognized world-wide to bring greater awareness to the racial and gender pay disparities. In the United States, the April date symbolically marks how far into a new year the average woman must work to earn as much as the average white man did in the previous year.
Join us! Equal Pay Day Chicago is both a focal point to raise awareness of pay equality, and a platform for organizations to collaborate across the state. We invite you to be a part of this effort. Contact us through email or any of the social media platforms below.
