Equal Pay Day
This year, April 4 marked Equal Pay Day, the symbolic day of when a women's earnings "catch up" to men's earnings from the previous year. On average, women are paid 20% less than men, and Black and Hispanic women are paid even less, according to LeanIn.org.

If you are interested in  learning some strategies for negotiating a starting salary or promotion, attend the upcoming Mid-Day Women's Alliance meeting, Equal Pay for Equal Work , on April 19.
