Gender and race equality and equity are critical in organizations that want to perform at their highest level. However, currently, black women have to work 233 more days than white non-hispanic men to earn the same amount of money. We can do something about it.
Lean In Women of Color Chicago, Lean In Illinois, The Impact Alliance NFP, the Chicago Council on Science Technology, and Studio B are hosting a panel discussion to raise awareness about the pay gap impacting black women in the United States. The conversation will be based on the movie “Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II,” that chronicles the story of the first Black women to work in industry and government administrative service during World War II. During this event, you will learn more about black women pay gap, what different organizations are doing to tackle this issue, and the different steps you can take to make a difference.
When: August 22, 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Where: The Wing, Fulton Market, Chicago
How much: Tickets are $5.
Tickets are non-refundable, no exceptions. Proceeds of this event will be donated to the “Invisible Warriors” production and an initiative to mentor and empower black girls.
Light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.
