EQUAL PAY DAY: A REFLECTION ON WOMEN’S ECONOMIC SECURITY
Equal Pay Day commemorates the day into the new year that women must work in order to earn the same amount of money that their male counterparts were paid during the previous year. Please join us to raise awareness about this disparity and learn what you can do to help move this issue forward!
Wear red to the luncheon to symbolize how women often "see red" when they open their purses and find less money than they should because of wage discrimination! Equal work deserves equal pay!
