Over the years, the gender pay gap has become an even more pressing issue within the global workforce. With numerous studies focusing on the wage inequities between a man and a woman, the demand for change is clear. To truly understand the imbalance and become a part of the solution, it’s important to be equipped with the impactful knowledge you need.
In the United States alone, white women are paid about 20% less than their male co-workers. The gap is tremendously worse for women of color; in comparison to white males, Black women are paid 38% less with Latinas being paid 47% less.
So, what should you do to make strides towards a workplace of pay equity?
