Black Women’s Equal Pay Day is Tuesday, August 7th.
The day represents the number of extra days a black woman would have to work to earn what the average white man makes.
While black women are obtaining degrees at higher rates than other demographics, their take home pay doesn't match their ambition -- making only 63 cents for every dollar made by the average white male (all women make 80 cents on average).
It's imperative that we close the wage gap for black women, and all women of color. Let's hold corporate America accountable and continue to ask for more.
- In honor of Equal Pay Day, we're giving our community an exclusive first listen to a special bonus episode of Minda Hart's Secure The Seat podcast with Negotiation Expert and Forbes Contributor Tanya Tarr about the stats and what we can do to close the wage gap.
