Our Director of the Hispanic Entrepreneurship Training Program, 
Valeria Aloe, was part of the Latina Equal Pay Day event panel
discussing equal pay issues in the Hispanic Community

Yesterday was Latina Equal Pay Day. That means Latinas had to work all of 2017 and until this day in 2018 to catch up with what white men earned in 2017 alone. No matter what their job, where they live, or how much education or experience they have, Latinas are still paid less than white men. Valeria Aloe joined this panel to raise awareness about this issue.
