Worth the Whole Dollar: Latina Equal Pay Day and Beyond

More than 50 years after the Equal Pay Act of 1963, Latina women still earn around 55 cents for every dollar earned by white, non-Hispanic men and must work nearly 23 months to earn what white men earn in 12 months. In other words, it takes almost TWO YEARS for Latinas to earn what White men earn in one. Latina Women’s Equal Pay Day is the final “Equal Pay Day” of the year and is observed this year on October 21, 2021. Even as Latina women have entered the workforce in record numbers, they still face the largest wage gaps among women. From wage transparency to inclusive policies, join Maribel Lara, SVP, Head of Consulting at The Sasha Group a VaynerX company as she moderates an honest discussion with Ramona Ortega, Founder of My Money, My Furture | Mi Dinero, Mi Futuro, Melissa Hotzoglou, Executive Director at JP Morgan Chase, and Misty Gaither, Director of Global Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Business Partners at Indeed, on how they’re ensuring Latinas get the whole dollar - today and in future generations.
